Newspaper Archive Lookup

Postby Lusby84 » Thu Dec 19, 2019 5:21 pm

Hello,

A cheeky ask.... but does someone have access to British Newspaper Archives - to do a lookup for me of a family notice.

I am looking for a obituary printed on 8 Mar 1844 for a John Lusby - in Lincoln, Rutland and Stamford Mercury. (Birth 1759 - death 26 Feb 1844).

Have found it searching on FamilySearch. But it’s not within FindmyPast newspaper collection.

I have already used up my freebies on BNA website and can’t afford to subscribe at present.

Is there any other info in the write up other than what’s written above??

Thanks in advance and Merry Xmas!

At first I couldn't locate the obit either. Then I searched using "1844" for the year, and simply "Lusby" for the name. That did the trick.

Thank you again so much have found it too! No idea why it wasn’t searchable with the parameters I tried!
Thanks Emma :)
