Newspaper records can be confusing to navigate. A single newspaper can have multiple records, and a new record is made every time that newspaper changes its title, publication frequency, location of publication, ownership or focus.

Here is a reference guide, and individual title change diagrams can be found in the “Title Change” column on the Project Newspapers page. Stay tuned as more diagrams are added to the list!
