Online Newspaper Collections - Free to View
Most of the online Newspaper collections are in some way 'pay' to view. You will either need to buy a 'day pass' or subscribe to a particular organisation for access. Most university students will already have access granted if connecting to these sites through their own academic login. Local newspapers are available to view on microfilm at your local library.
It may seem pointless searching the London Gazette while researching your local family history, but the London Gazette has served as a national government newspaper for centuries. Use the gazette to look for ancestors who have held civil service or military posts. Available to search free online.
Much of the Edinburgh gazette contained the same information as its London counterpart, however there is some local elements. Available to search free online.
