Early Retford Newspapers
« on: Saturday 16 October 10 23:30 BST (UK) »
I am researching my family in particular, 

Richard Hannam Snr b 1793 d 16 Jan 1838 at Retford,
Ann Hannam (His wife)  b abt 1757 d 10 Dec 1828 at Retford,
Richard Hannam Jnr (his son) b 1760 d 14 Jan 1856 at Retford.

The two Richards were prominent Solicitors in the town and Richard Snr was involved in some scandal to do with the elections around 1830.
 I would hope that there would have been an obituary or death notice for them in the local paper. My question is; what local papers were around at the time, do they survive, and if they do where are they?

One other question where are the Diocesan records for St Michael's kept?

Any help would be appreciated

Thanks  Steve Hannam

Hi Steve

If you go onto the British Library Newspaper Library website you can search for all local papers.

The Library is in Colindale, London and you can just turn up and view the papers, also Libraries in Retford may have copies of old papers.

Also try The Times online, if the scandal was big enough it would be reported, you can get access to the times by joining a library online, try joining one where you live or even in Retford if you don't live there.

Good luck, Borri

Hi Steve

Thanks Larkspur

Thanks Larkspur
                           I must be missing something I have looked at all the Gale web sites and no success, do you have the web address that you access it by. I even tried the library drew a blank there too.

Thanks

Hello...

I can't tell where you are from your profile but you can access the Nottinghamshire Library newspapers from here - just need your Nottinghamshire library card number:  http://infotrac.galegroup.com/itweb/ntm_ttda
