The Connecticut State Library has the most complete collection of newspapers published in the state – including the HARTFORD COURANT, (published continuously since 1764). Other papers such as the DAY of New London have also published since colonial times. Located on microfilm, these sources are not indexed. I will search for obituaries by date in local newspapers (I can also search for birth and wedding announcements). Lookup may involve searching several daily papers for up to 30 days. I will provide (in jpeg format) a copy of the microfilm entry. If an obituary or similar item cannot be located I will describe the newspapers and dates searched. Turnaround time between 7-14 days.
