Following a campaign led by the Langport & District History Society, the British Library and Find my Past have digistised the Langport & Somerton Herald. The first pages went up on the British Newspaper Archive website yesterday, and more are being loaded today. This is fantastic news for anyone interested in Langport history, because you can now search it by a word, instead of having to scroll through microfilms at the Somerset Heritage Centre. Just think of all the local snippets, family history, business ads and so much more that are waiting to be found. For best results you need a subscription, but it’s worth it!
