Access archive editions of the Echo with new online service
Articles printed in the Lincolnshire Echo more than a century ago are now available online through the county archives.
The newspaper, first printed in 1893, is one of five in the county included in the new local news service as part of the British Newspaper Archive.
And the service - launched by Lincolnshire Archives and the county library service - is offering access to local newspapers dating back to around 1700.
Millions of articles printed in UK newspapers in the last 300 years are included, although it is not a complete record of back issues.
Digital versions of newspapers held at the British Library have been included in a collection which is one of the best in the worlde.
The Echo is included alongside copies of the Grantham Journal, defunct titles including the Lincolnshire Chronicle and Louth and North Lincolnshire Advertiser - and Britain's oldest newspaper The Stamford Mercury, dating back to 1695.
More than 220 newspapers from all over the UK are accessible.
Head of Lincolnshire libraries Jonathan Platt said: "Previously, the county's historical newspapers have only been available on microfilm or original print.
"This has made it very difficult for local researchers to find and look at what they need.
"A search of the UK's papers would have required a trip to the British Library in London.
"Now researchers, family historians and history buffs need only log-on at their nearest library.
"Lincolnshire libraries have always collected and preserved local newspapers for current and future generations.
"By providing digital access to these valuable resources, we hope to encourage people to explore more of their local and family history."
