British Newspaper Archive reaches 40 million pages target

Congratulations to the British Newspaper Archive (www.britishnewspaperarchive.co.uk) on reaching its target of forty million pages.  Here's the current tally:

As noted last week (http://scottishgenes.blogspot.com/2020/11/british-newspaper-archive-will-continue.html), the project has clarified that it intends to keep going, although for how much longer, and to what new target, has yet to be anounced on its site.
