Does anyone know what newspapers [apart from Lynn Advertiser] was in circulation in 1945 /6 in Lynn, please.
Access is free on FMP until June 6th. but I can find nothing for what I want to know.
Still looking for my Dad's home coming after the war. Researcher and helper at library found nothing in the Lynn News for 1946.

The most recent issue of the Lynn News available at the BNA (or FMP) is dated 12th September 1944. I don't know of any other paper bar the Advertiser published in Lynn.

Angie said that they did have 46 in there desira. I will check again tomorrow if her daughter is in work s she took a job at both Lynn libraries when Ange retired.
She will also check other publications at that time.
Did you find what you were looking for on you last visit a couple of weeks or so ago.
I do not want thanks for any research I am able to help out with. I just love doing it.

I have been making use of Findmypast free newspapers offer valid until 6 June. I have found lots of info from Lynn News in 1950s. It has had various titles - Lynn Advertiser 1925; Lynn News and County Press 1941; The Lynn Advertiser & Wisbech Constitutional Gazette and Norfolk and Cambridgeshire Herald 1917; and many other variations.
I just searched under Norfolk and up they came

I've tried just Norfolk and anything across the country that contains Norfolk comes up plus I put in the year I want and they are all mixed and don't follow the dates through the months.
