Newcastle Evening Chronicle Death Notice Look Up please
« on: Tuesday 30 May 17 18:19 BST (UK) »
The Evening Chronicle death announcement listings on Genuki has the following:

LAIDLER, Georgina Mavin, age 32 months, Gateshead, announcements published on 8th and 9th November 1889 (they will be the same announcement but hopefully at least one will be readable okay)

These editions not yet online in the British Newspaper Archive / via FindMyPast

If anyone is going to be at Newcastle Library and has the time to look at the microfilm, I'd be grateful for further details.

Thanks

Boo

Hi Tickettyboo

If no one beats me to it ... I will be able to look this up for you at the very latest by the end of next week. :)

That is very kind of you (as ever) no great hurry, its waited since 1889, will wait a while longer until you have the time.

Hi Boo,

I managed to get to the Newcastle City library today - much sooner than anticipated. :)  The notice is a very good quality one - very easy to read as it was a good copy on microfilm:

Evening Chronicle. November 8th, 1889
'LAIDLER. - Gateshead, 2 Tyrrell Street, 7th inst., aged 2 years and 8 months, Georgina Mavin, the dearly beloved daughter of George & Elizabeth Laidler.  To be interred in Gateshead Cemetery on Sunday first; lift at 3pm.  Friends please accept this the only intimation.'

(The exact same notice appeared in the following edition on the 9th.)

Best Wishes :)

Oh thank you!

I really do appreciate this but hope you didn't make a special trip on my behalf.

 The inclusion of both parents' names in the announcement, combined with her middle name of Mavin  (Mam's maiden name) puts Georgina in the 'found !' box for the 'one baby born and died too soon' that I was looking for from the 1911 census details.

 I do like to document these babies, their lives were sometimes so short but I am certain that they were loved and mourned and really want to include them properly in my tree.

Thanks again

Boo

Hi Boo,

I totally agree with you that the very young who died would most certainly have been loved and mourned.  For this reason I also like to find and document these babies and toddlers in my own family history.  This often increases the size of families somewhat.  For example, when I first started out researching a Grandfather's family I thought he was the youngest of seven.  However, now through researching Church records to date I have found he was actually the youngest of ten.  I have also found that in the past if a child died parents sometimes went on to record a future child of the same name if it was a particular 'family name'.  My own Granfather called his first daughter the same name as was given to his baby sister who had died a few years before he was born.

Best Wishes :)
