Does anyone know if there are digitalised newspaper archives avaiable from Kwa Zulu Natal in the 1970's?

I have a relative who was killed there in tragic circumstances about whom I know nothing and surely this would have made the newpapers so would like to unearth some more details.

@ B-D Family. Would the incident have been reported in any BRITISH newspaper, rather than in a foreign source - assuming your relative was a British national? Such as "The Times" - so the Times Online Archive...?

Hi FAD,

Try emailing the 'The Mercury' newspaper - this paper has been in business from way before the1970's and still publishing.
