Online Records[edit | edit source]

The Provincial Archives houses the largest available collection of Saskatchewan weekly newspapers, and many of the major Saskatchewan daily newspapers. In most cases, these newspapers are available on microfilm, beginning with the Saskatchewan Herald (Battleford) which was first published in 1878.
Family historians may find a wealth of news in both daily and weekly newspapers, including: notices of births, engagements, marriages, and deaths; local news features, including reports about sporting events, social events, and local politics, which may mention the names of family members; advertisements for family-run businesses; and “comings and goings” columns which were common in small town newspapers and documented when people left or returned from trips, when special guests came to visit, and other such topics of local interest highlighting variations from the day to day routine of town life.[1]
