More digitised Welsh Newspapers freely available

For the first time since June last year, the National Library of Wales has added a significant tranche of newly digitised newspaper titles to the project website.

Several of these are of value to researchers interested in the Saundersfoot area. Firstly two regional newspapers, the Carmarthen Journal and The Welshman are now available for the first time as well as the short-lived Principality.

Secondly, newspapers digitised for the Library’s First World War project are now included on this site as well, making our life much easier. For Pembrokeshire this covers the Haverfordwest & Milford Haven Telegraph (HMHT) from 1914-19.

A status report provided by the National Library showing what newspapers and editions are currently provided with notes about planned additions is available here. This shows that there’s more to come in 2014 with the Tenby Observer and earlier editions of the HMHT being of particular interest.

And it’s all still available free of charge.

  1. At last some more progress on this site however
    The Narberth Whitland and Glynderwen Weekly News would be a brilliant addition when it is digitised, hopefully in the near future, a really chatty paper for south east Pembrokeshire
