Could someone please look up this message in the newspaper family archives dated 28/06/1884 regarding

"Elizabeth Dillon, wife of Michael Dillon, of 40, Kegent Street, Xewtcwn, Bristol, aged 40. "

I have been trying for a couple of weeks as paypal doesn't seem to be working at the moment.

thanks Glenda

I registered with British Newspaper Archive, got my free credits and didn't have to sign up to any package ......


+++DetEcTive+++ Report 14 Apr 2013 11:36

Humph - then something went wrong here yesterday :-|


MarieCeleste Report 14 Apr 2013 11:45

DET - are you trying to do it on the Genes site or on the BNA site? (The latter is the one I used)


+++DetEcTive+++ Report 14 Apr 2013 11:56

It was a different look up yesterday, on the BNA site.
After registering, it tried to get me to take out a year's subscription and I couldn't work out how to *not* take any. The 2 day pass was the cheapest available

I got the look up in British Newspapers as part of FMP


+++DetEcTive+++ Report 14 Apr 2013 12:23

I've got it on GR, but the filtering process gave several thousands of results!


MarieCeleste Report 14 Apr 2013 12:35

I've actually got the BNA on FMP too. I prefer the search engine on the BNA site and sometimes find items on there that don't come up when using FMP.

I've just registered again on the BNA site using hubbies email address and got the credits no problem, no enforced subscription.
