Hello EMMERSON.

Herewith an exercise in searching out a series within a regular newspaper. One article caught, my eye when undertaking some pioneer research. It took me three goes to complete the series, which I'm about to offer to descendants, including further research by members of this forum and volunteers from the Waiuku Museum.

As stated in an earlier post, just because you DONT GET A HIT, it does not mean that the item is not in print. Try alternative search criteria.

Examples attached, plus link to GRANDMAMA'S Story thread.

https://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=839360.0

Keep up your good work.

Clipping examples of where the continuing series has NOT been linked. Not found using "GRANDMAMA'S STORY" nor "By A Waikato Lady".  So went to the publication listings, and page image searching, on possible days of publication, as per table above.

You'll put me out of a job Alan :)

This is an excellent example for anyone wanting to get a bit more out of a lot of content. Doing a text search to find things is a great time-saver, but if you have the confidence to go looking for specific pages, dates, articles, you can sometimes plug the gaps that search can't fill.
