Trove Tuesday

Trove Tuesday – A Girl’s Death

For this week’s Trove Tuesday, I am sharing two articles about the death of my grandfather’s sister Mary Marr.

The first article I found was:

A Girl's Death
Australasian News. (1908, November 16).The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times (Tas. : 1899 – 1919), p. 3. Retrieved July 26, 2016, from


I then found a more detailed article.

Girl's Death
GIRL’S DEATH. (1908, November 16).Bendigo Advertiser (Vic. : 1855 – 1918), , p. 8. Retrieved July 26, 2016, from


I wasn’t able to find an article about her death in either the Argus or Age (the two main newspapers for Melbourne), but I was able to find her death notice.

Mary Marr death notice
Family Notices (1908, November 16). The Age (Melbourne, Vic. : 1854 – 1954), , p. 1. Retrieved July 26, 2016, from
