Microgrants/British Newspaper Archive

From Wikimedia UK
Jump to navigation Jump to search


During recent attempts to write some biographies of Lancastrians and also to improve articles about a number of buildings in the local area, I kept stumbling upon sources in the British Newspaper Archives, which I'm struggling to find elsewhere. I'm hoping to get a years subscription - which allows unlimited access to the archives for that period.


£79.95 - 1 year subscription, unlimited page views.


365 days

Expected outcomes

I should be able to improve the following existing articles

And that's just for starters, I'm not a "prolific" article writer, but I'm finding that writing Wikipedia articles keeps me sane against my other Wikipedia "duties", so you're helping keep a man's sanity too..

Who I am

I'm Dave Craven, or w:en:User:Worm That Turned. I'm currently based in the North West UK and regularly attend Wiki-meetups in both Liverpool and Manchester. I'm a member of WMUK and active on the English Wikipedia, have a look at my userpage for more info.

I don't think that this should be a problem, but Mike will need to OK it... Mike? Richard Symonds (WMUK) (talk) 16:11, 28 June 2013 (UTC)
