Question:

I have two French Canadian ancestors who died in Lynn, Massachusetts in 1912 and 1928.  Can you advice what newspaper online I can use to locate their obituaries.

 

Answer:

The era you mentioned is not online for the city of Lynn, Massachusetts.  I would suggest the Lynn Daily Item on microfilm from the Boston Public Library's Microtext Department.  This is the general newspapers for the city.  Since your ancestors were French Canadian I would like to suggest a French language paper published in Lynn.  The Le Courrier de Lynn was published between 1910-1914, and later changed to the Le Lynnois and was published through 1934.
