Signal No 55

Access to the local newspaper

With the help of our President Robyn Warner’s son-in-law Peter van Dijk, the museum now has a very accessible digital archive of all issues of the island newspaper, Signal.

These are on an iPad with a searchable function so that a user can type in a name, or any words, and instantly have all of the Signals with that name or word brought up and the word highlighted in yellow.

This makes for a very user-friendly way to research family, friends, events from the island newspaper going back to the 1950s. Visitors to the museum can access this system on a museum iPad to do research.
