Thanks for the reply & looking in the Boston Globe.
Neither the Globe nor any paper that would serve Swansea would be available to me as I'm not from the southeastern MA area.
My limited genealogy budget also doesn't allow for me to indulge in the luxary of a subscription to one of the sites that carries archived & historic newspapers hence my obit request in the hopes that someone local to Swansea, MA area or who does have one of those subscriptions might be able to locate obits for these two individuals.
DCs, unfortunately, aren't an option as the deaths are too recent and therefore, only available to direct descendants.
And, it's through obits that I'm hoping to determine if the daughters of Bertha by her first marriage made it to adulthood & may possibly still be alive.
If they are, they might be mentioned in both Gilbert's & Bertha's obits if obits had been published for one or both of them.
Thanks again for taking the time to reply & look in the Globe. I'll keep my fingers crossed that someone will be able to locate the requested obits for me.
