It just show a brief discussion about new Zealand in a certain period. Reading its history needs a lot of time in order to understand it, because you will be reading the complete era of NZ from the start until now.

The Canada Gazette, from its inception in 1841 through to the end of 1997, is searchable here:
- English: http://www.collectionscanada.gc.ca/databases/canada-gazette/index-e.html
- French: http://www.collectionscanada.gc.ca/databases/canada-gazette/index-f.html

(1998 and newer are "current" and thus separately accessible on the website of the Canada Gazette Directorate - http://www.gazette.gc.ca/index-eng.html or http://www.gazette.gc.ca/index-fra.html).

I am grateful for the reference to the Canada Gazette.
No luck yet, but the remainder (they say) is coming, so I will keep an eye on the site.

Cheers

This link is for an account which is no longer active. Anyone have any ideas on how to access this resource now?

Chris:

As I read the page your link takes me to, the resource is still available, but whatever username and password you were using is not recognized as active account.

I suspect that you would have to re-register (or register a new account) ..... paying whatever fees (or jumping through whatever other hoops) are required .... and the resource could then be accessed.

Illustrated War News online - Canada's 1885 North-West Rebel

Postby GrantRCanada » 25 Mar 2012 07:34

While here, I thought I might as well post a link to an online presentation of all 18 issues (in their entirety) of The Canadian Pictorial and Illustrated War News, published weekly in Toronto from 16 May through 1 August 1885, during Canada's North-West Rebellion.

I love this comment in the brief description on the access page:
Aptly described as "bombastically nationalistic."

http://peel.library.ualberta.ca/newspapers/IWN/

This is part of the University of Aberta's Peel Collection of Western Canadian newspapers. (The Illustrated War News was not published in the west, but of course was exclusively concerned with the Rebellion ....)

The British Library's collection "British Newspapers 1800-1900" is available either on a pay basis or a free basis if you are a member of library which subscribes to this data base.

You could enquire at your local /state/provincial /national library to see what they can offer, either in the actual library, or remotely where you can access the database on your own computer. You could also enquire at a local university, or a university of which you are a graduate. There may be additional ways to access the website of which I am unaware.

There are also other collections of British Newspapers and periodicals, mainly available to card holders of participating libraries, but including a few pay sites. The FIBIS Fibiwiki page "Subscription websites-online newspapers, journals and directories" has more details
http://wiki.fibis.org/index.php?title=S ... irectories

The link for British Newspapers 1800-1900 , available on the Fibiwiki page is
http://newspapers11.bl.uk/blcs
It is possible to buy a 24 hour pass, or a seven day pass, if you can't access it through a subscribing library.

I've been using PapersPast in New Zealand for years now - can't imagine life without my daily fix.
The Australian newspaper site is http://trove.nla.gov.au/ndp/del/home. I've found it very useful - if I can't work out the passengers on a ship entering or leaving a New Zealand port from/to Australia, I can 'jump the Tasman' and look it up there.
This is also a free-to-all site.

Regards
Bruce
