Hello - does anyone know where I can view a copy of an obituary apparently published in the newspaper "Nfld Express- June 2, 1863" for Susan Heale, born Moretonhampstead, Devon, who passed away in Quidi Vidi (Newfoundland)? I have looked myself but cannot find this publication (I have close to no experience searching Canadian sources). Thanks!

I googled Newfoundland May 1863 and one I got was

Thanks for the suggestion Marion. I wasn't able to find the relevant edition at this site. In the meantime, I have discovered there is a CD/database of Newfoundland Births, Deaths & Marriages notices from 1810-1890 available for purchase from the Canadian Maritime History Archive. Perhaps this is the source of the obituary text on the profile (which was entered by another researcher)? See: https://mha.mun.ca/mha/publications.php

Does anyone have access to this CD or database?

It seems that this is the same data available on Ancestry:

Hi Tony, Thanks for the suggestion. I know Ancestry has the obituary indexed (the record I found shows the CD above as the source) but the Obituary text doesn’t seem to be available on Ancestry and their is no image attached to the record either ...unless I’m missing something...
