    I've been looking at the newspapers.com site quite a lot over the last couple of weeks for a lot of my Americans and Canadians. Even the snippets can be helpful, but I'm thinking I might take up the free 7 day trial when I have a week with plenty of time for snipping and saving!

    Re dying at almost the same time. I don't find it that strange. I have quite a lot of examples of very old couples dying within days or weeks of each other. Several were buried together, the deaths were so close. Quite sweet really.

    Perhaps they missed the census because they were hospitalised.

    This is probably a red herring but thegenealogist shows both a Charles and a Lucy Lydall in Oregon in 1940. My gold subscription level will not allow me to see the detail so I don't even know if they are together. It seems unlikely that they would be so far from home unless they had gone there for the climate for health reasons.

    I believe FHCs have a sub, but not sure when I'll next be at mine.

    I have a great-aunt and her spouse who died within a day of each other. I was thinking all kinds of gruesome thoughts until I obtained their DCs - both of natural causes.

    So, the index page for them on Ancestry (which is mistranscribed, reporting Charles as Charles Lucy Lyddall), shows that their dcs are not on or even right after each other
    Volume Number: 47 [corrected, as it was mistranscribed]
    Page Number: 247 [corrected, as it was mistranscribed]
    Index Volume Number: 97

    and lucy
    Volume Number: 46
    Page Number: 353
    Index Volume Number: 97

    not sure that's significant, tho.

    I have also been looking at that index, and a little bit of further search has showed that volume 46 has 502 pages, there appears to be only one entry per page. The entry for Volume 46 page 367 (the closest I could find after Lucy's entry) has a death date of 31 Mar 1940, so it might be that Lucy died sometime in March which was just before the census. Could Charles have been staying with family then?

    That's true. I guess I'm just not used to seeing deaths in quick succession. [except on my transcribing where I see whole families wiped out by the lurgy]
