British Newspaper Archive & Genes Reunited

Platinum subscribers to Genes Reunited can now add the British Newspaper Archive to their annual subscription for an additional £39-95.

No announcement has yet been made by Find My Past about a similar offering for their subscribers.

Find My Past and Genes Reunited are both owned by Bright Solid, who in partnership with the British Library launched The British Newspaper Archive earlier this year.

Having subscribed to the British Newspaper Archive through Genes Reunited I've found the search facilities aren't as good as on the main British Newspaper Archive site which offers Advanced Search facilities like exact phrase and without these words.

This is irritating as I now do the search on:
but have to go to Genes Reunited to view the results.
