Hi folks, I hope you're all doing well!

We're gearing up for what we think is a quite significant release, this will be going live hopefully next week:

Kaikoura Star (misc. issues 1880-1922, 1923-1950)
Kawhia Settler and Raglan Advertiser (1905-1933)
Taranaki Central Press (November 1936-July 1937)
Press (1946-1961)

This is the first time we've pushed into the 1960's - this is the first release in a series that will see the Press digitised up to 1995 on the site, thanks to the help of the teams at Press and Stuff/Fairfax, who gave us their permission to do this.

Not genealogy related, but I came across this gem of a headline: https://paperspast.natlib.govt.nz/newspapers/CHP19610117.2.151
