18th and 19th century British newspapers are now on line at:

http://www.britishnewspaperarchive.co.uk/

You can search for free (7 different filters – date, region, paper, etc), and you will get a synopsis of each find, which can be arranged by date or relevance. The synopsis is an OCR scan, so there will be mistakes (misspellings, illegible words, stray punctuation marks, etc.), but it will give you a gist of what the article is about.

Of course you will have to subscribe to actually access the article, but you can get a subscription valid for 2 days and worth 500 credits, for as little as £6.95. A full year costs £79.95 and credits are unlimited.
