Most countries have what was called a "Union List of Newspapers", published by their National Library. These are now being migrated to online catalogues and databases. As SOLLOGHODMORE is in Tipperary a search of this database on The National Library of Ireland website should help: https://www.nli.ie/en/catalogues-and-databases-printed-newspapers.aspx. For ...

What an interestingly-written column… A fairly quick search for "laid in the shade" doesn't bring much up. The common result is the literal interpretation of people or animals taking shelter from the sun. Not something one would typically announce in a newspaper. A second result, exemplified by the Adventures of Captain Simon Suggs by J J Hooper (1845), and ...

The BNA has the death notice in the Dundee Courier on Tuesday 13 June 1944. It's rather brief: ORMOND. At Dundee, on June 11, 1944, John Barclay Ormond, of 115 West High St., Forfar, husband of Elizabeth Cook. Funeral private. The record was slightly harder to find due to poor automated character recognition in the article - a common enough problem on ...

Where else might information be lurking about these births and deaths? Death Records and Cemetery Information The Family History Library has a Register of New York City death records (update: this is no longer available to read online) describing what records the FHL holds. I haven't read the entire 209-page document yet, but when I was skimming it, this ...

Those numbers appear to have nothing to do with the obituary information. If you look at the rest of the full page you linked to, you'll see (2) and (c2) and (c8) and (c14) and other such codes in the same location after many of the want ads that are to the right of the obituaries you show in the image. It must be some sort of code used by the newspaper, ...

The horse was likely stolen, as there had been an increase in horse theft during the Revolutionary War. Horses would be stolen in one locality and sold in another area (another county or state) to prevent capture. An interesting account of the horse thievery of the Nugent Gang, The Valley Scourge, is posted on the Franklin County, Pennsylvania website. On ...

I would simply interpret "of Tettenhall" as being John's current abode – but I do not think that anything more can be inferred. John may or may not have died at Tettenhall. In the same way, burial records often include abode, but do not typically include place of death. I agree with the other answers in that Kidderminster and Wolverhampton were previous ...

The extra information in your Bradford Observer record looks helpful. It appears that the marriages and deaths are given in reverse chronological order, starting "yesterday". The publication date was Thursday 14 February 1839, which by convention is "today" within the paper itself. So, working back from that date we can fill out a table of day references in ...

I would not assume, as in this answer, that all of the events in the newspaper column are past events. The phrase "next Monday" can be ambiguous. In the Southern USA, "Monday week" is used to disambiguate the closest Monday in the calendar ("Monday coming") from the following one. For your example, today is Friday the 10th -- the closest Monday is the ...

I would always interpret "Joe Bloggs of ..." in an newspaper obit as meaning the place where Joe Bloggs died. In this case, that should mean that John Wright was resident in Tettenhall at the time of his death. The phrase "... late of Kidderminster" suggests that he moved to Tettenhall from Kidderminster. This would appear to match the information in the ...

One of the job titles in the legal profession is Advocate. In some regions, the abbreviation Adv is suffixed to a lawyer's name to indicate this position. Other similar expressions would be JP (Justice of the Peace). I'm not sure of the practice of Arkansas but the use of Adv in this case suggests that the individual was a legal Advocate. As the ...

Since the previous answer was written, GenealogyBank has redesigned the site and included some new features. Look under the Browse menu on the top navigation bar: From there you can filter the available newspapers, and browse through the collection to see what papers are available, in a fashion similar to the record picker on fold3. For the screenshot, I ...

The problem is not the copyright it is the Terms of Service. The newspaper itself is out of copyright so if you had taken your own image of an original it would be legal to distribute without any concern. However the contract you enter into when you sign up for Ancestry allow you to use THEIR images of the original ONLY IN THE WAYS THEY APROVE! This is the ...

If we assume that the events being reported are past events, which seems reasonable, then maybe an analogy can be drawn between how "this/last month" are described and how "this/last week" might be described. A date in this month is "<date> inst." A date in the last/previous month is "<date> ult." A day in the last/previous week may be "<day&...
