** COMPLETED ** Looking for obit details from Pueblo, Colorado
« on: Friday 17 August 18 12:42 BST (UK) »
Hi there -  Was trying to look up an obit link I have, but for some reason it will not allow me to access it from Scotland??  Any ideas how to get round it, or could someone perhaps look it up for me and be able to copy & paste the details (if there are any)?  Would be much obliged.  Thank you.

Link is as follows;  http://www.chieftain.com/obituaries/index/1169704800

Obit is for George Malcolm MacKintosh, died Jan 2007.

Thanks for any advice/help.

Ah thanks for that.  I got a '451 unavailable due to legal reasons' error & something to do with GDPR.  I shall try your contact page link.  Cheers again.

How very strange?  The Chieftain obviously refuses contact from a UK/Scottish PC?  I get the same message trying the 'contact' address too...

George's obit: http://www.rootschat.com/links/01mje/

George's wife Delores died in 2001

It appears the  page can't be accessed using an UK IP address. I switched to a US IP address and had no problem accessing.

Will PM you obits for both as they mention children and grandchildren still living.
