FREE NEWSPAPER ARCHIVES (& GAZETTES) - 24-02-2016

Because I find them so useful for finding Births, Deaths,Marriages and Burial dates, plus Obituaries and sometimes even photos, I am including links here to free Newspaper Archives around the world. This will obviously be an ongoing project!

Note, the Australian one (TROVE) is down until the 25th of February, as they are doing a major update. After that, it should be back up and running again.
