Re: Obituaries in Paris newspapers #france

Family and DNA

In general, the obits (avis de déces / rubrique nécrologie) for famous and/or rich folks would be in Le Figaro or Le Monde. There are also local papers -- in Paris it'd be Le Parisien, for somebody from Brittany it'd be Ouest France, etc.

(Posting to main group in case anybody else has this question)

Boris, note that here they like to Frenchify names of people & places, & her first name is written as 'Hanna' -- keep that in mind when you are doing searches.

I am looking for an obituary for an Israeli artist Hannah BEN DOV, who died ca. 4 March 2009 in Paris. Which newspaper(s) would most likely publish it and is it possible to search them online, similar to NYT?


Thank you!
