Here's a site I hadn't seen before - Welsh Newspapers Online, provided by the National Library of Wales:

Interesting article here on the Chapman murder. A mixture of accurate and inaccurate information - nothing new there - but the description of the building and yard is more detailed than most and includes reference to the rusty padlock on the shed door being broken (Richardson?) and a supposed sighting of "the murdered woman" with a man presumed to be her killer in "The Bells on Brick Lane". Does anyone know if there was such a place?

Thanks from me, Chris, also (especially as it's free!).

Default Welsh Newspapers and Mary Jane Kelly

Thanks for the Welsh Newspapers link !

re the following:
http://welshnewspapers.llgc.org.uk/e.../3600396/ART23

Mary Jane Kellys death...
If you look at the bottom of the first column and the top of the second, it states she lived with a Joseph Kelly of Bethnal Green before? Does anybody know about this? Or do you think they meant Joseph Flemming?

The original link does not seem to be available.

I use this site:

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

For 29.95 (about $50) you can get 30 days of
access and 3000 credits or about 600 pages.
Most 19th century newspaper pages cost about
5 credits, the more recent pages, 20th century,
can be 10 or 15 credits.

There are also weekly and yearly packages
available.

Hours of fun.

I think they are the same ones that are available at the British Newspaper Archive. Both sites are owned by something called 'brightsolid':
http://www.findmypast.co.uk/help-and...ase/newspapers
http://www.britishnewspaperarchive.co.uk/help/about

(Why companies can't have proper names any more - such as 'Incorporated Allied Widgets Limited' - is beyond me.)

Hi Chris

Well I guess it's better than "Newspaper Solutions" or some such nonsense.

It may be that a Find My Past sub would be more economical - depends how much newspaper searching people want to do, I suppose.
