Discovering A Dark Past
Yesterday at Hemlington Library we explored the British Newspaper Archive. There is a strange glitch which says 401 permission denied. But we then logged on and found that due to the Middlesbrough Libraries license we were able to access the entire newspaper archive (unlimited) completely free. One woman found a story of an ancestor who was a singer on a ship and another found an article about an ancestor who had been shot in the back of the head.
