Just a note that the search is not fool proof. I can not get my 2g grandfathers death notice to appear in the search results even when I narrow it down to the exact date.

I know it exists as I already have a copy of it.

The newspapers are indexed using OCR software but it is not very accurate.

I now know my 5g grandmother's initials - B. B. She was 95 in 1853.



At least I know she existed.
