Has anyone been using Newspaper Archive recently? They continue to add thousands of new newspapers every day. I had presumed that their claims of this were BS, since very little new stuff ever appeared in searches. The browse new additions now works, and there are lots of new papers available.

Problem is that hardly any of it is indexed for searching. The Lubbock stuff I am adding at the moment, I;m having to search each newspaper. That's fine for weekly towns when you know the dates, but a bit trickier for researching spot shows.

I was having a look at Wichita Falls, TX which has just been added, and there are newspapers available for when the town was a weekly venue, but nothing appears when using search.

I had a chat with them on the help text chat and they weren't much help at all, said it all seemed to be working fine.

Funny that they now advertise "Hablamos Español" for their help facility. What they don't tell you is that they don't speak very good English.
