Laurie Winter sent this with regard to trying to find an obituary for Robert Clifford Jr, who died in Quebec:
Have you tried the provincial National Archives? I’ve worked mainly with the ones in Ontario, but Quebec has it’s own branch. I know that they’ve started offering some digitized newspapers, so you may want to search their digital collections and see what’s available. Here’s a link to the collections page:
There was a newspaper called the Sherbrooke Gazette. It has been indexed by Pamela Waugh. We would suggest you google her name or the name of the newspaper to acquire access to the resource.
I did use several years of French papers but found that they don’t carry an ‘English’ obituary unless they had a connection to the French Canadians, such as a politician or a doctor. There were/are two solitudes.
