Historical Research Using British Newspapers

Historical Research Using British Newspapers originated as a byproduct of Denise Bates’ research into breach-of-promise cases and (separately) women in coal mines. Her talk covers the various steps involved in locating newspaper information about an ancestor and placing it in the context of the time. The talk is based primarily on the British Newspaper Archive.

Denise Bates is a Midlands-based writer on social and family history who has written three books and contributed to programmes on BBC Radio 4 and Channel 5.
