The people who use these boards are not GR employees.

If you have something to ask must contact them directly

Why don't you contact the newspaper in question and ask if they have an archivist?

GR don't have ANY records of their own.

And hardly any newspaper articles are on the would take years and enormous financial outlay to put them all on line

Sussex used simply to be one county...............until it was divided into East and West in 1974
