Scanning is an imperfect process. We try to remove as many errors as we can before publication, but unfortunately some will inevitably get through.
Please let us know of them. If you use the ‘’Noticed an error on this page” link on the bottom of any page that needs fixing, our Archive team can then take care of it. If you submit a correction the entire article will be checked, so you need not list each mistake.
If you find the modern-day scan of an archive page unintelligible, we would suggest you select and read the original article which you’ll find on the right-hand side of the page.
Eventually all your error notifications will be acted on, and in time we hope to achieve 100% accuracy.
All comments, suggestions and criticisms are most welcome.
Every page has been scanned and digitised, each article tagged and extracted, so that you can search the whole archive by content, keyword, topic, location, and date.
