Obituaries, and sometimes Death Notices, not only indicate when someone died but may also reveal what they died from, when and where they were born, the names of their spouses and other relatives, where they were buried and much more. And although it is true that some were still brief and not terribly informative, some contain a wealth of biographical information. Obituaries and Death Notices are sometimes the only record of someone’s death. Death certificates, even if supposedly required, were often never issued in some parts during the 1890’s to 1920’s. In addition, they are sometimes the only source for the maiden name of a woman.

The Obituary Archive hosted at the Regina Leader - Post site is a real treasure trove so please take some time to visit this site. The Regina paper is a provincial publication so they receive obituaries for a wide variety of communities throughout Saskatchewan. It is not often that you get access to this amount of information without a trip to the archives.

The community papers in smaller towns and cities likewise, host searchable obituary archives which are a valuable resource for genealogists striving to preserve the history of our forefathers.

I will been extracting obituaries for Battleford settlers as I come across them and will be adding them to the index in the near future. If you have any obituaries, documents, information or links that you think would be interesting additions to the Battleford GenWeb Site please forward them to my attention and I will be happy to add them to the collection.
