For those of you with Saskatchewan roots, we have a lot of good news for you. We’ve teamed up with the Saskatchewan Genealogical Society to bring several new databases online.
- The Saskatchewan, Canada, Residents Index (SRI), 1800–2012, is the largest, with an index containing almost 3 million names from cemeteries, local history books, Cummins Maps, voter lists, and other books. You’ll find another quarter million folks who made their final home on the prairie in the Saskatchewan, Canada, Burial Index, 1802–2011.
- The Saskatchewan, Canada, Royal Canadian Mounted Police Obituary Index, 1933–1989, features an index of obituaries from the Quarterly, a publication of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. Who may have been looking for some of the folks in the Saskatchewan, Canada, Gazette Changes of Name, 1917–1950, though if you bother to make your alias legal, you’re probably legit.
We’ve also added records for couples getting hitched and unhitched in Texas in the years 2003–2011 to both the Texas, Marriage Collection, 1814–1909 and 1966–2011, and the Texas, Divorce Index, 1968–2011.
And finally, long before Facebook, folks scanned the Boston Pilot for information on Irish immigrants they had lost contact with. Between 1831 and 1920, more than 45,000 advertisements like these appeared in the newspaper:
Now World Archives Project volunteers have indexed them for the Searching for Missing Friends: Irish Immigrant Advertisements Placed in “The Boston Pilot 1831–1920” database.
Anybody know whether Emilie O’Brien ever wrote that lawyer?
