Follow the history of Jersey and its families through our carefully selected articles from newspapers of the past. This new section of the site was introduced in 2019, starting with articles from the Jersey Times
newspaper from 1848.
Assembled into our own special news page format, these articles show a fascinating picture of life in the island in years gone by. We have added explanatory notes wherever possible and there are links to other associated articles elsewhere in the website. You can access our index of these news selections here:
and there are also links to individual articles from many pages throughout Jerripedia, particularly from our Family pages
The Jersey Times selections will soon be joined by articles from other 19th century newspapers, and in 2020, from Evening Posts from 100 years ago. We are also planning to include a special maritime section.
