The Times online

The Times newspaper has been released online by American genealogy site Footnote at www.footnote.com. For a free week long sign up, you can access all editions of the London newspaper from 1785 to 1820, after which there is a monthly membership of $7.95, or an annual subscription at $59.95. It should be noted that this is an excellent rate if you also wish to search their many thousands of additonal documents, mainly American and military.

However, if you merely wish to access the Times, there is a much easier way, and it is free! Bedfordshire Libraries Virtual Library at http://www.galaxy.bedfordshire.gov.uk/cgi-bin/vlib.sh has every issue from 1785 to 1985 online, as well as access to many editions of recent newspapers through InfoTrac. Simply register, and then start surfing!
