Post Script to the birth notice posts


Post Script

I tested the strategies described in Perfecting Newspaper Searches: Birth Notices–Part 2 as I wrote the post. Although I didn’t find the birth notices I was targeting, I did find plenty of new-to-me information. Among other things, I found:

  • A loving memorial notice for ancestor whose death had eluded me for 25 years.
  • A child’s death notice that mentioned her grandparents.
  • Two insolvencies.
  • An arrest for assault.
  • A public health violation.
  • Request for tender to build a new house and shop.
  • False charges of assault against three teenage boys.

I can’t complain about that!
