1915 records are now online for North East Newspapers but the search facility doesn't seem to work (the search works fine for me for other time periods) - does anyone else have the same problem ?

Well, I tried Easter and then Christmas in the keywords search and got no results found, which doesn't seem right - but as I have never found anything I have searched for on this site I may not be the best person to trust for help.

I will watch with interest.

Thanks, I suspect the images have been scanned but possibly not OCR'd as they've not long since been put up but I wasn't 100% sure it wasn't just me.

Just checked today and a lot of the pages have been taken done and the rest are still not searchable - presumably they're having technical problems.

The only 1915 newspapers for the North East are a 50 issues of the Newcastle Journal for January & February plus 6 for March. This may explain why searhes for Easter & Cjristmas are giving no results.

Yesterday the pages covered the whole of 1915, they seem to have taken them down.
