Title: Nick Reddan's newspaper extracts
Post by: wee Hugh on Sunday 05 September 21 18:22 BST (UK)
A useful source (in spite of a fair number of mistranscribed entries).
But I can't find an index to the code letters use to designate the newspapers.
Can anyone tell me what are LEP-CS and WMT J  ?

I see the latest update to the web site was in early 2019,
so there may be no point in trying to contact Nick.

That page gives the codes, including the two you are looking for

Nick is very heavily involved in Registry of Deeds project, he is still around.

PS FindMyPast has more newspapers than Nick in their newspaper collection plus other collections which have been indexed years ago.

Thanks to you both.

It seems I was looking at an old site, which has the information in a different format.
