In the mid-18th century the provincial press stopped copying news from London newspapers and began to carry news of local events in their own columns. Coverage was usually limited to the area of circulation, and this let the papers focus on local events such as births, marriages, and deaths, for example. Such papers are of obvious value to the genealogist, and Mr. Gibson has produced a fine location list. Arranged by county, and thereunder alphabetically by local area, it describes concisely what papers were published, when they were published, and where they can be found today.
