I absolutely love old newspapers. I spend hours upon hours searching papers for hints and clues about my family.
I have told you in the past about my favorite site NYS Historic Newspapers. I have also had great success on other newspaper sites. I am not generally a huge fan of Fulton History. When I was doing research on my dad’s uncle Berlendo Moro I did find them useful.

I am trying to gather all the information on this case because I find it fascinating. Berlendo seemed to have died as a result of a gunshot wound because he was helping a friend who was a police officer.

In the end his killer did admit to killing him and I believe served 8 years.
It is taking me a while with this story as it was a big case and it was reported in several papers each with a slightly different version.
So like I have said in the past I love newspapers.

8 years for murder….hmmm!?!
You’ve done well with these newspapers, its one of my real weak spots! I have a subscription to British Newspapers Archive but cannot seem to set search criteria well enough. I lurch between zero or being overwhelmed with hits on every syllable of a word or name!!!
