Old Stars online

Going back: Star managing director Tony Giles looks back at older copies of the newspaper which can now be found online.

AS well as having up-to-date news on the Great Southern Star’s website, old news is available online too.

The copies of the Great Southern Star ranging from 1914 to 1918 will soon be able to be viewed using the website Trove.

Before now, the website was lacking in newspapers from the South Gippsland area.

Around 18 months worth of the 1914-1918 papers are already online, offering an insight into South Gippsland, how World War One was reported in the local papers and how people were living through it.

These papers can be found at  http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-title321

They will definitely be an interesting read.
