The Times (UK) Newspaper Archives Free for 3 months

Lynn Heale & Bob Dawes from Quinte Branch share a free website (originally from Lynn in Australia):

Over the weekend I went to the "Who do you think you are" genealogy fair
in London (England). At the fair it was announced that the Times has now made
available its archives online. You can now search from 1787 to 1987 online
free for the next 3 months. The web address is http://archive.timesonline.co.uk/tol/archive/

You do have to register with them but they did not ask for a credit card
number. You have 72 hours to confirm your email address with them or
you must begin the process again.

Lynn put in the name HEALE and there were 2095 hits.

Good to hear that. At least we could be updated on the news for free. It's also good that it didn't require registration and all access are absolutely free.
