Hertfordshire Mercury Archive - COMPLETED
« on: Thursday 15 November 12 12:46 GMT (UK) »
Some time ago I remember seeing something about access to newspaper archives but I cannot remember where. ??? There was an article in February or March 1952 that I would be interested in seeing. Any suggestions please? :)

http://www.britishnewspaperarchive.co.uk/ has the Herts Mercury but only 1800-1899

Hertsdirect.org has (searchable) summary listings from that newspaper and others from 1758-2012

Hope one of those might be what you're looking for  :-\

Good luck

Thank you so much for your reply.  I have added the British Newspaper archive to my favourites list in case I need to look up something else.  The article I was trying to get was printed in 1952 and although I have the original from the newspaper it is now getting a bit faded. :(

I have checked the hertsdirect listings but it is not on there unfortunately.

I think I will type it out so that at least others will be able to read it - it tells the 150 year history of a public house run by my ancestors from 1800 until 1952.

Thank you once again.
