Poor Law Union Gazette

I'm keeping an eye on progress of the British Newspaper Archive, a partnership between the British Library and Brightsolid, parent company of findmypast.co.uk, in the early stages of digitizing up to 40 million pages from the UK national newspaper collection over the next ten years.

To whet the appetite for the launch this fall with 1 million pages promised archive examples are being shown, the latest of which is from the weekly Poor Law Union Gazette, which was published from April 1857 to April 1903. 

It gives details of those who being sought to assume their spousal and parental responsibilities.
