1. Alberta BMD Records 2. Medicine Hat Newspapers ca 1930's ?
« on: Saturday 25 May 13 20:11 BST (UK) »
Wondering how to find information in Alberta. 1. Do they offer any digitalized user friendly records?
 2. Medicine Hat Newspapers......any indexes available?  Interested in Christie, Jessie Margaret   Death ca 1930's
I know that BMD's were always news worthy events particularily in smaller areas.

Thank You.

http://peel.library.ualberta.ca/index.html and http://ourfutureourpast.ca/ are places to look for newspapers. The latter has the "Medicine Hat News" but not up to the 1930s.
