    Will any of the newspapers down Illawarra way be published on Trove???? If so when?

    Thank you for al the newpapers as they are really helpfun and add a wealth of facts about ones relatives of the past.

  2. Hi Marie, I can’t answer for the the NLA as to what paper’s will and won’t be digitised, so you’d be best to contact them directly. The links for the “contact us” page from the Trove Newspapers site takes you to: http://librariesaustraliaref.nla.gov.au/reft100.aspx?mi=RP7EiqM8GUuZd7Q5FSG3Kw
