SMH Death Notice Look-up - 16th Jan. 2001
« on: Saturday 13 January 18 05:06 GMT (UK) »
I am trying to obtain a copy or transcript of a Death Notice from The Sydney Morning Herald, issue dated January 16, 2001. The notice refers to the death of Florence May MILLS.

If anyone is planning a visit to a State Library in the near future I would greatly appreciate your assistance if you would be so kind to look-up the notice?

I know all about her birth, parents and marriage etc. just looking for the death notice.

Kind regards,
Ed.
