My ancestors lived in Yorkshire West Riding.....What paper is the best paper to look up there death notices between 1855 and 1877
The West Riding of Yorkshire covered a large area, see the following link for a list of the different parishes. You would need to be more specific for us to answer this:
I just looked it my records they lived in bradford and Sheffield parishes
Does family search have death notices for sheffield area...???
Could you give us a name and a date please.
OR you could check with FreeBMD for for a possible death in 9c registration area.
Thats for Sheffield.
Bradford I believe is 9b.
Elaine in Ottawa.
According to their catalogue, FamilySearch.org has:
England, Yorkshire, Sheffield - Newspapers ( 2 )
England, Yorkshire, Sheffield : Family Notices, 1855-1904
England, Yorkshire, Sheffield : Obituaries, 1855-1904
Looking further, they say: This collection comes from The British Newspaper Archive, and is a collaborative project with FindMyPast.com.
So, the FamilySearch record is likely to be a transcription of the basics (good to start with).
Check out the British Newspaper Archive direct (https://www.britishnewspaperarchive.co.uk/) or via Find My Past. Your local library may have a subscription to the BNA and/or FindMyPast.
