Hi folks - it's new content time. We added two new titles and extended the date ranges of three other newspapers today -

New:
Woodville Examiner 1883-1920
Hawkes Bay Times 1869-1874

Additional content:
Otago Daily Times up to 1930
Waikato Argus (collection extended back to cover 1896-1904, in addition to the pre-existing 1905-1914 issues)
Bay of Plenty Times (added 1872-1875, thanks to NZSG and the Bay Trust - and also 1921-1930, thanks to Tauranga City Libraries)

Enjoy!

Have just found, in the latest release of the "Woodville Examiner", a very graphic report of "The Inquest" into the suicide of a GG Uncle.  I am sure it wouldn't be allowed to be published in todays papers!
 The information has opened up another line of enquiry into this family.   So I add my thanks to the people at PapersPast for making these precious resources available to us all and best of all for FREE.

I have been using both the old and the beta sites in the past few weeks to compare them and I much prefer the beta site.  The sooner it's the live site the better.

Hi Everyone,

Can I ask those who have used the Beta site what they find an improvement over the current site.

For me, I like the page presentation and the selection parameters section, especially facility to narrow the date range by using the slider bar.

I love the fuzzy thinking where the site then automatically selects publications searchable within the range and excludes others.

I do prefer the current site which gives you the newspaper title and date (reading date, month, year) page number at the top of the page, excellent for cut and paste of citations. The Beta site is harder and seems to be 'month, date, year'.

For the sake of established use and continuity could that be changed, please, Papers Past?
