Hi Roberta,

You need to go to the Kalamazoo County MI GENWEB page, your search engine will take you there, scroll down & click on Lookups & it will take you to the Kalamazoo Library Search engine for archives.

I typed in Berry, Ivor & found lots of articles printed in the Kalamazoo Gazette. You can then ask the volunteer to make copies on their next visit to the Library.

Found:

Death posted Kalamazoo Gazette on 09/02/1985 D,024:1
Death posted Kalamazoo Gazette on 09-03/1985 D,012:1
Obituary posted Kalamazoo Gazette on 09/03/1985 D,005:8
Obituary posted Kalamazoo Gazette on 09/04/1985 B,005:4
Obituary posted Kalamazoo Gazette on 09/04/1985 E,004:3

Also, listings noted in Art Scrapbooks & an article about Estate & 3 million dollar award, which may or may not be same person.

I assume the Kalamzazoo Gazette dates are followed by Section of the newspaper i.e. D,E,B; followed by page # then column posted in.

Good luck,
Marilyn
