Obit. for Barbara Dinette Doyle
« on: Sunday 03 January 16 14:20 GMT (UK) »
Hi All  :)

I am looking for an obit. for Barbara Dinette Doyle (nee Robertson) b. 1888 Pictou, Nova Scotia
who died December 10, 1939 in Worcester, Massachusetts. Her husband was Martin Nicholas
Doyle. I am hoping her obit. mentions her sisters.

I have posted on the Canadian board for her elusive sisters, Margaret and Jane Robertson.

Thank you  :)
Cheers,
DB

The Worcester Public Library has an 'Ask A Librarian' service.  Maybe they could search for an obituary.  The local newspaper is the Worcester Telegram.

Thanks Erato :) I didn't know they had "Ask a Librarian". Will do that.

Cheers,

I've had good success with some libraries but others have not even bothered to acknowledge my emails.  It's my impression that smaller towns are more responsive  ...  Worcester is on the large side but, who knows.  Good luck!

 ;D Yipee, I received the obit. for Barbara.  ;D Two thumbs up to the Worcester Library.

She is survived by hubby Martin, brother John, sister Rose......and sister Mrs. Margaret Cotton, of
Chicago, Illinois.

Margaret it appears was married before to William Klein, and seems to go by the name
of Maude. Just trying to follow her up.

Thanks Erato  ;D

Cheers,
DB
