I started this blog to enter Births, Marriages and Deaths that I'm finding while doing research for people in "The Moose Jaw Times"
I've been going through the Moose Jaw Newspaper microfilm starting in 1889. In 1889 Moose Jaw was in the NWT and the newspaper was "The Times" Later it became "Moose Jaw Times Herald"
Missing film from Moose Jaw Archives
9 April 1897 - 31 December 1899
Moose Jaw Papers 1890-1899 can be found at

Three Registration Books that were found in the garbage in North Battleford 40 some years ago were leant to our Branch and a member photgraphed them. As they are over 100 years old the information is being posted here for all to see. Here's hoping it helps someone with an Ancestor
