"PAPERS PAST" Update Part IV
« on: Wednesday 07 October 15 19:37 BST (UK) »
Last night I came across this (one) addition to Papers Past. I don't recall seeing any notice about it so forgive me if I'm behind time on this..........

Latest additions to Papers Past (September 2015):
Evening Star (1865-1920)

Although in publication at some of the same time as 'The Otago Witness' and 'The Otago Daily times', I have already found new information. One example being a more comprehensive obituary about an ancestor, tying in details which I thought concerned my man, and this article proved them.

A big thank you to the Papers Past team............

Hi Minniehaha,

Until it appeared recently on Papers Past I had no idea there was yet another Otago newspaper, and I've also made lots of new discoveries.

The Evening Star's reporting of criminal matters was very comprehensive. They even made a habit of italicizing the names of the miscreants making it very easy to pick out details from a long article.

I was not aware of its existence either. And yes, it gets a big tick from me.

Were we notified about it via Rootschat, or did I just miss this??

No. :) I know Papers Past often do post an update here which is always very welcome, but this was a surprise.

p.s. I'd still like to see the New Zealand Police Gazettes appear one day!

I forgot to say that RootsChat tries to keep topic pages to no more than twenty pages, so someone will have to start "Papers Past" Updates Part IV once Part III hits the ceiling. ;) ;)

Thanks for being on the ball Minnie :D  I didn't see anything about in via my emails, so perhaps the eagled eye folks weren't aware either ;D


Cheers
KHP

Edited:  Just seen the email with the update ... must have sent that one to SPAM for some reason  :-\

Hi folks, sorry for the lack of update on the Evening Star! We've been very busy working on the next incarnation of the Papers Past website, I've been rather immersed and totally forgot to let you all know about the Evening Star, please accept my apologies.

Our next release might be before or after the new site goes live, I'll try and keep you posted next time ;)
