Onine Welsh Newspapers

This site is from the National Library of Wales and offers around 15 million articles and over one million pages of historic Welsh Newspapers. More than 120 newspaper titles are represented in the collection.

The search page allows search by key word, time-frame, and type of article. You can also browse by paper, decade, or region of the map.

The viewer is rather unique in that next to the page image is an OCR version of the articles on the page. It can be a challenge to use because of reading errors and lack of formatting, but I have not seen this combination offered very often in a side-by-side arrangement.
