The National Library of Wales has just launched its online newspaper archive under the branding of ‘Welsh Newspapers Online’. Very good it is too – even if it is still in ‘beta’.
For our area two newspapers have been included at this initial stage:
- Pembrokeshire Herald, 1844 – 1910
- Potters Electric News, 1859 – 1868.
The Library has plans to post more material during 2013.
