Can you see a column somewhere headed "Aberdeen District Gossip" if so scroll down until you see a sub-heading "Buchan" and you should (hopefully) see the article.Hope this helps.Alison

Thank you very much for that Alison,
Think I must have gone word blind I've got the Aberdeen Journal, dated 1 August 1894, page 5, col. 4 (pdf file) in front of me and I still can't see the article, it starts with 'A chapter of tradgedies' and ends with 'Election News' and nothing in between about Alex. Murray, so guess its magnifying glass time again then.
Thanks again Alison
Thanks for the gen Alison. I ve looked through most of the paper now and as far as I can see there is no Aberdeen District Gossip anywhere, nearest to thatMessage 2 of 10 , Nov 28, 2012View SourceThanks for the gen Alison.
I've looked through most of the paper now and as far as I can see there is no "Aberdeen District Gossip" anywhere, nearest to that is "District News" so looks like FindMyPast/The British Library Board have got the right paper but cross linked the search to the wrong edition, i'll have to contact them about it. I'll have a look at the Gale Newspapers site, notice that appears to be in association with the British Library Board as well.
