Murder in Medved (Novgorod Gub.) in 1910 #russia


I have come across a document in the Veliky Novgorod archives indicating that a relative of mine, a Jewish meat merchant living in the town of Medved, in the Novgorod Guberniya, was robbed and murdered by local peasants on his way back home from a business trip to St.Petersburg, in November 1910.
I'm hoping a local (Novgorod) newspaper might have carried a mention of this incident. I'd appreciate any suggestions on how to search.

This site lists on-line digitized newspaper archives, both old and recent.  Some are free, some are paid.  The site's list is geographical, so start by looking under Russia and see what is available.  If you don't read Russian than you're probably going to need help with your search.

Another idea is to find out if there is a library in Medved that has archives of old local newspapers.

Good luck in your search,
