Canadian newspapers at World Vital Records

Malcolm Moody at Archive CD Books Canada alerted me to yet more Canadian newspaper content appearing on the World Vital Records (WVR) service. The press release is here.

As pointed out before, this is mainly content that has been freely available from paperofrecord.com. The largest part of the digitized collection now being added is the Temiskaming Speaker, 1905-2001 (9.4 million names) and not now at Paper of Record.

World Vital Records continues to grow its offerings through its strategy as a consolidator, putting together a package of materials previously available elsewhere. For example, Archive CD Books Canada's collection of CDs searchable on the WVR site and the UK census collection from Find My Past.
