For Posterity's Sake Canadian Genealogy
The creation of the new Royal Canadian Navy section of my website has been completed and I've begun the transcription of obits from the Canora Couriers for 2013. I should be all caught up by end Jan 2014. Thank you for your patience.
Do you have old copies of the Canora Courier around your home? If you do, please send me an email. I am interested in getting copies of the obituaries in them to expand the collection.
If you find an obituary that pertains to your research, scanned copies of the obituaries are available upon request. Please provide the full name of the deceased, and date of obituary in your email.

Doug Sinnis' Obituary Index
To view the complete index (requires Adobe Reader) click here.
The majority of the obituaries in this index are from Pictou County covering the years approximately 1930 to the present. There are however, earlier years and also obituaries from other parts of Nova Scotia & Canada. For transcribed copies of an obituary please send an email and include the name and the obituary number in your email; or
View/download the complete transcriptions. They are available in MS Word or Adobe PDF format. Due to the large size of the file, they have been broken down into 8 sections. Each file is approximately 2.5 megs and may take several minutes to open depending on your connection speed. The webmaster takes no credit for the creation of this index nor responsibility for errors or omissions in the transcription of the obituaries.
My thanks goes to Doug for his permission to post this collection here on For Posterity's Sake Genealogy.
The Gym Bag Collection - Volume 1
The Gym Bag Collection, Volume 1, is a collection of Obituaries, Memoriams and Cards of Thanks from Colchester County, Nova Scotia. I like to call this the Gym Bag Collection as they were all stored haphazardly in a gym bag. Some of the articles were originals, but the majority were photocopies in various states of readability. Many articles were torn, folded, water-stained and photocopied overlapping each other. Every effort was made to transcribe them here with as much accuracy possible. Where an article was unreadable, or text was missing due to the article being torn, "(...)" was entered where the text was missing. Where possible, some articles were repaired by comparing and merging duplicates. Also included are approximately 150 hand written transcriptions by Mr. S. Hutchinson of Tatamagouche, NS.
