Can anyone tell me where I can find copies of this newspaper? I'm searching for a death notice from January 1879. I believe "The Inquirer" was in print at that time.

Do you mean the Lancaster Intelligencer newspaper? Civil War era newspapers are available on-line, but do not include newspapers as recent as 1879.

Only the Columbia Spy or the New Holland Clarion are available on-line for the year 1879. You can also write to the Lancaster County Library and ask for a copy of the death notice from microfilm.

The paper was called "Inquirer" or "Lancaster Inquirer" and was in print from 1859-1886 (according to the information I have found).

Thanks for the advice about the death notice. Death notices would have been in the local newspapers, correct?

Here's another good place to look for information about newspapers. There is information about when the newspaper was published, and sometimes you can find digital images of some of the issues. In this case, the Lancaster Intelligencer is available from 1880 to 1890. There are also useful links to lists of all newspapers published in Lancaster City, Lancaster County, PA, etc.

The Lancaster Historical Society has copies of all of the papers and will do it for you, for a fee.
