I've found an article I'm interested in on FMP newspapers but unfortunately it is blanked out. Just wondered if someone else could access it.
24th January 1855 Derby Mercury ROBERT BOALER
Jenny, those particular newspapers do seem to be unavailable on FMP. They are equally unavailable on British Newspapers website
Just my luck!
Thanks for looking Dave.
If your Robert Boaler is the one who married Jane Hunt then could it be a newspaper announcement for the birth of their son- Robert Mee Boaler, born in the Worksop, Notts. area 1855 September quarter..??
Sadly this child's death was also registered in the March quarter of 1856 so the death could also have been in late December of 1855.
HAPPY HUNTING :sleuth_or_spy:
It is the right Robert but the article appeared to be about some kind of property.
The family lived in Barlborough so I'm going to the Heritage centre next week and hopefully I'll find something about him.
Using fuzzy logic to bring up more snippets of the FMP transcription I came up with this:
