The Saskatchewan Archives Board has weekly newspapers dating from 1878, and their collection is complete from 1943. These newspapers may contain information concerning births, marriages, and deaths. For events occurring prior to 1888 in Saskatchewan, they may be the only source of information. The archives have a selective index to obituaries (1930-1965).
The Saskatchewan Genealogical Society has an extensive index to birth, marriage and death notices from provincial newspapers. The society is also developing an obituary index. Other old newspapers can be found in Saskatchewan Provincial or Legislative Libraries, or in local archives. Many of these are also indexed.
