The British Newspaper Archive

Presenter: Sue Reid

You can access the British Newspaper Archive at the QFHS Library and Resource Centre. This session will show how to use this valuable resource for research in the United Kingdom with particular emphasis on using the BNA at the library.

Newspapers can enrich family history in countless ways. You may be able to find birth, engagement, marriage, and death notices for family members, including overseas events. This can help identify family relationships and ensure that you are searching the correct person. You can find records of court cases, sporting events, community activities and much more.
