The Spectator Archive

Right-wing British magazine The Spectator isn't high on my reading list, or one we think of for family history. But as a publication going back to 1828, and now available free in searchable digitized format, it's a potentially productive source for context.

"Every page has been scanned and digitised, each article tagged and extracted, so that you can search the whole archive by content, keyword, topic, location, and date."
