Hi Folks,

Does anyone have the means to look-up on the British Newspaper Archives?

Many thanks

Hi Kay

From our guidelines for posting

http://www.rootschat.com/help/posting_guide.php

Do not ask for look-ups from commercial sources.
Most commercial sources have strict 'Terms of Use', which forbid publishing their data elsewhere, so asking for such look-ups is also asking people to ignore the 'Terms of Use'.

It's free to search on both the direct site and FindMyPast

http://www.britishnewspaperarchive.co.uk/

but you'll need a subscription to view any possible results.

If you join the BNA you get 15 free credits which may help with your first result.
