This digital archive makes available online copies of the Lincolnshire Star and the Epworth Bells from 1914 to 1918. We hope it will be of interest to local historians, students and pupils, and anyone who has an interest in or connection with the history of North Lincolnshire. You do not need to be a member of North Lincolnshire Libraries to use it, and you can do so from anywhere with an internet connection.


The site is easy to use. You can browse the papers from a particular date, or you can search for a specific name or event. The software uses Optical Character Recognition (OCR) to match search terms to pages. We have also added 'tags' to the pages, to help identify individuals, organisations and major events.


You can view the results online, and you are welcome to order a high-quality print by following the links provided.
