Hertfordshire Records Online

Hertfordshire Archives & Local Studies have several county databases searchable from a single form. They are: 

Apprentices (1599 - 1903)
  Archive Catalogue (1100 - 1999)
  Fatalities (1827 - 1933)
  Miscellaneous Names (1753 - 1942)
  Marriages (1538 - 1922)
  Newspapers & Magazines (1758 - 2010)
  Newspaper Pictures (1890 - 1952)
  Removals (1688 - 1908)
  Settlements (1679 - 1865)
  Wills (1413 - 1857)

Click here to carry out a free search. To get an image of a newspaper obit costs 5 pounds - reasonable compared to a trans-Atlantic flight, or even the cost of a ticket from central London to Hertford.
