I suggest reviewing the list of microfilmed newspapers
(http://www.nysl.nysed.gov/nysnp/101.htm) available at the New York State
Library on Madison Avenue in Albany, then spending an afternoon browsing
those newspapers. There is no complete run, but the Albany Gazette, Albany
Daily Advertiser, The Albany Centinel, etc. all published in those two
decades and the NYSL has microfilm of them.

Subject: Albany Newspapers between 1800 - 1820

> Good afternoon.
> I have a couple of related questions for the list:
> 1. Were obituaries of "regular" people - ie, not public figures -
> published in Albany newspapers between the years of 1800 and 1820?
> 2. If so, what newspaper relating to Albany and/or the Town of Bethlehem
> might have published such an obituary during that time period?
> 3. Where might that newspaper be archived?
> Any help in answering the above questions would be greatly appreciated.
