Newspaper article look up please.
« on: Saturday 18 November 17 02:57 GMT (UK) »
Hi.

Im wondering if any kind person has access to any New Zealand newspapers? What I'm looking for is in the "Otago Daily Times". Issue 18532 dated 18th April 1922.

It mentions my Great Grandfathers brother, a Mr. Thomas Frederick Stevenson and another article (maybe on the same page) mentions his wife Harriet Agnes Counsell. They are from a place called Ystalyfera in South Wales, UK.

Could anyone find these articles for me? I would be ever so grateful.

Thank you.
David.

Hello David,

I provided the additional information because I had a feeling you were unaware of what is now available here on line. For my part it did not take long; just a couple of advert. breaks while watching television.  ;D
