The British Newspaper Collection on Findmypast is an ever-growing resource of fascinating historical information for you to delve into. Since our last round-up in December, we've added over 2.25 million new articles, including 8 brand new newspaper titles.

The eight new titles include publications from from the cities of London and Glasgow as well as towns in the English counties of Devon, Lincolnshire, Shropshire, and West Sussex.
