I've just found loads of articles about various family members. Just daily news but interesting all the same

Add my thanks for the link as well Sue. I had a great session last night, with lots of info found which fitted / confirmed my records. The search facility is good, but the optical character recognition looks a bit shaky. Considering paying for further research. We tend to think that young deaths in the 19C were due to illness, but I found a 5 yr old who fell from a window, and a child who fell into a pond whilst flying a kite - both resulting in death.

I subscribed to this earlier in the week, really enjoying what it has to offer.

I also use the completely free newspaper resource on the Lancashire CC Online Reference Library (ONRL). http://www.lancashire.gov.uk/onrl/ Anyone in th UK can sign up, they send you a membership card with a barcode on it. It is the barcode number that allows the access. While the local papers (e.g. Burnley Express) are not incuded, the Preston Guardian is as well as many others. I've found quite a lot from this free resource over the years. Perhaps worth looking into before buying subscriptions?
