Hi folks,

My grandparents lived in Kirkburton from the 1970s to 1990s and are buried in the churchyard there. I'll be visiting the area soon and am hoping to look up some family events in the local papers, but I'm not from the area myself so I'm not familiar with any titles.

Which newpaper(s) would I need to be looking at for this time period, and will I find them at the local studies library in Huddersfield or elsewhere?

Thanks in advance for any help!

I think it would be best to start at the local studies library as they will be able to tell you which records they hold. You can contact them on 01484 221965. They also publish some old newspapers that you can access on line, these are probably older than what you are looking for but make good reading. They will also be able to tell you how to access these. We do have some local newspapers at the Root Cellar at Meltham where we also have lots of material available and volunteers who will assist you in tracing your family history. I am not sure what period the newspapers cover cover but you could email: cellarmail@hdfhs.org.uk for further information. Hope this helps.

The films from the Huddersfield Local Studies library would be your best bet for 1970-1990. The Root Cellar has excellent resources for the C19, but very little for the 1970-1990.
