The Times Digital Archive, covering the years 1785-1985.
this access begins on Sunday, April 10th for one week only!

It contains every page as published from 200 years of The Times of London
(England).

The text within the images is fully searchable at the article level. Users can
easily search news articles, classfied ads, obituaries, birth, death and marriage
notices, virtually everything that appeared in the newspaper. Results are
displayed at the article level and users may view the article or the full page
upon which it appeared.

If you have relatives who lived or passed through London at some point in time,
this database may hold some surprises for you. Even doing a simple surname
search, synagogue or business query may yield new information about your family.

The Times covered all major international historical events from the French
Revolution to the Falkland War. Functioning similarly to the ProQuest databases of
historical newspapers, every page has been scanned and digitized.For more
