Hello,
I don't usually ask for help getting access to subscription based services, but I am really hoping to get an article from the Globe and Mail of March 12 1898 and I am a bit stuck because although it seems the archives are available online, it is only through libraries or a university with a proquest subscription. My local library does not and I don't have any access through a university.

Would appreciate any help or ideas!

I have two names who have died in Canada but both have death days/actual places I have never been able to find.

Frank Burrard Creasy believe buried 1983,  Barrie Union Cemetery, Simcoe, Ontario. Senior Inspector, OPP.

Phillipson Lyon Bowes, died about 2004, Surrey, British Columbia.

Oh thank you Runkitty! Owe you one! 😀
The article is a biography of my 3rd great grandfather Collins Handy, and I understand there is a photo of him as well which should help find it. March 12,1898.

Frank Burrard Creasy obituary in the Toronto Star July 19 1983, page A14. 
He was a former staff inspector OPP.  He died at St. Joseph's Health Centre on July 17 1983.  Husband of the late Effie.  Father of Phyllis Fenno of Barrie Ontario and Dorothy Hunter of Vancouver BC.  Grandfather of 5, great grandfather of several.  Friend of Ena, Rachel and Paul.  Interment Glendale Memorial Gardens.

The Toronto Star archives site is available to everyone online... http://pqasb.pqarchiver.com/thestar/search.html

Like Miss Trees, I have not been able to find a way to access the Globe and Mail other than through a library or University site.  It would be really nice if it were as readily available as the Toronto Star database!!

Many thanks RunKitty. Frank Burrard Creasy has an adventurous life. Born Ceylon, educated in England, started off his law enforcement career in New Mexico, USA and ended up in Toronto.
