Searching for Newspaper Article

Postby stargazer200529 » 15 Dec 2010, 22:47

My Great Grandmother's first husband killed her mother. This took place in the early 1900's in Italy. He was prosecuted and put in prison. Could this murder be in a newspaper or would there be a trial record of it somewhere?

My Grandmother and I think it would be interesting to read more about it. My Great Grandmother never spoke about it, and we were just wondering what the full story was. We don't know the exact year, just that it was early 1900s. Any ideas how I might find more information out about it?

Ciao,

Do you know the town/ region in which this happened? That info will help you find a local paper that would have run the story. Here is a link to the archive for La Stampa one of Italy's large national papers. I'm not sure they would have run with this story, but their archives date back into the 1860's, so maybe you'll get lucky.

Thanks!

Any advice on the best way to search this? Will it pick up names? Should I search by year and location?

Would there have been a trial? Maybe there are judicial records.
