Default Essex Newsman newspaper - findmypast

https://search.findmypast.co.uk/sear...=3658511147861

Covers 1881-1943.

They say: Try our first ever fully indexed newspaper search. Containing over 1.4 million names and spanning the years 1881 to 1943, our brand new Essex Newsman collection allows you to search accurately for names and family notices across thousands of pages of historical newsprint. You may even spot newspaper hints appearing on your family tree!

Seem to be saying that the main British Newspaper Archive indexing isn't very good? Anyway, I tried a couple of names and it does look good.

It does look to be well done, pity I don't have anyone in Essex. One of the best things is that it highlights the name on the page, which the existing search doesn't.

The British Newspaper Archive indexing isn't at all good, but it's slightly better than the existing FMP search.
