Newspaper lookup

Hi there, just wondering if someone who has access to newspapers.com would mind looking up an obituary for me?

Mary Hutchinson death date 18 Feb 1981 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada

Any help/information appreciated,
Thanks

Never thought of checking the Irish papers - good find!!

For reference there are lots of free newspapers at the Google Newspaper Archive including about 3 dozen Montreal titles.

Same here, just assumed it wouldn't have been in the Irish papers as she was living in Canada when she passed.

Great tip on Google newspaper archive I always thought newspapers.com was the only place to get access - thank you for the tip!

Sorry to Hijack but looking for a favour also.

Could someone with a worldwide ancestry or access to newspapers look up any further information regarding the death of David Addison, an American pilot who died in a plane crash in co tipp on the 19th November 1968.

There is results from 'deaths of American citizens abroad' but alas I cannot access.

I have information from the limerick leader newspaper, just looking for any other info to accompany this.

Thanks

You've presumably looked at his death cert as well - which should be on irishgenealogy.ie

Cheers. Thanks very much.

Completely forgot about the cert.

Interested in any additional newspaper material too
