Hi Spades!

It depends on which browser you use. With Firefox, press "alt" to get the menu at the top, then choose tools --> options --> privacy --> remove individual cookies. Type in the address of the site with the cookie you want to remove, it will show a list, and either remove all or remove a selected one. The session cookie should have "session" mentioned somewhere in its description.

if you use Chrome, go to chrome://settings/content/cookies, then search for the paperspast.natlib.govt.nz cookies and remove the ones you want.

There are similar steps for Safari, Edge, or IE, but unfortunately don't have those installed! In those cases, try this article for a quick guide - https://www.digitaltrends.com/computing/how-to-delete-cookies-in-chrome-firefox-safari-and-ie/

With PP, you're fine to remove all PP cookies or to just remove a specific one. The key thing is to make sure that at least the session cookie gets deleted. That's the important bit. If you get stuck, just give me a yell!

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

That would be awesome!

you can see the Police Gazettes on Archives website, type in New Zealand Police Gazette and then click on the 909 pages one, then you can either sort by year or go to page 7 and half way down is the start of the Digitised ones

Hi folks, we're still working through a few wrinkles here and there, but there's some new content up on the site now. This time, not newspapers - instead, the new stuff is the Transactions of the Royal Society publications - scientific journals essentially.

I'm not expecting that these will set the genealogical world alight, but these titles are an interesting case for us, they contain greyscale scans and full-colour pdf downloads, and these are improvements we'd like bring to other future titles on Papers Past because it will make images look better.

The other new addition is Te Reo ote Hokowhitu-a-tu, a magazine for the veterans of the Maori Pioneer Battalion - only three issues of this were ever published so it's not a large corpus, but on the plus side it means all issues are now searchable on PP.
