Prince Albert, Saskatchewan GenWeb Project - Newspapers

Dear Prince Albert and Area Gen Web Community,
Visit our new digital abode at, where we embark on a renewed journey. In this labor of love, our dedicated volunteers document the stories of one room schoolhouses, sacred cemetery grounds, historical maps, and vanishing placenames. It's a testament to our commitment to preserving the essence of our shared past.

We're excited to share that, with the support of our Patreon community (, we've secured a new domain and web hosting provider. This ensures the uninterrupted flow of information for years to come. Your involvement is crucial in growing our Patreon community, allowing us to persist in this meaningful endeavor.

Warm regards,
The Prince Albert and Area Gen Web Project Volunteer Team


Newspapers are a good source of information whether for genealogical or historical purposes. The ones listed here can be seen at the National Library of Canada in Ottawa. Other copies may be found elsewhere, such as the main Ottawa Public Library.

The papers listed here can be old or recent. You can borrow them on microform (could be either a microfiche or a microfilm) from the National Library. However, it is best to check out your local resources first - libraries, Family History Centre, and genealogical and historical societies before asking your local library to borrow this material for you.

The National Library's policy on inter-library loans and other requirements are found here.

Newspapers in bold italics are on microfilm in the self-service area of the National Library's Reading Room.
