  1. Some areticles are non-contiguous. Is their a way to capture them without including neighboring articles ?

  2. 2019 biggest title: NY daily news.

    2020’s.biggest title: Miami Herald

    How about an French-Language title from Quebec?

  3. The links to Ancestry have been fabulous.

    One small thing that would be much appreciated: Separate your “New and Updated” into separate links: 1. truly New titles; 2. Titles updated by adding pages published in recent months; 3. Titles updated by filling in gaps in earlier decades. It appears to me that your New & Updated is primarily Category 2, certainly if measured by numbers of pages. But for researchers, Categories 1 & 3 are much more important.

  4. Thank you Mark. Great suggestion. We will pass this on to Dan and Sausage on the dev team.
