Coilbound Edition



The notices in this volume were extracted from The Ottawa citizen newspaper by Dolly Allen and Joan McKay, and edited by John Patton. All are members of the Ottawa Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society who volunteered their work to the Society. The Ottawa Citizen was and still is published in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. For the most part the notices that were published by the newspaper, provide information regarding local families -- however, also sporadically included is news of births, marriages and deaths of members of local families who migrated away from the Ottawa region but still had family and freinds in the Ottawa area.

Every entry includes key information about the event, plus the date of issue of the newspaper that the notice appears in, as well as the page and column the item is on.

Though these books provide a essential information about the event on its own, they are especially helpful when you decide to go a step further and access the complete newspaper article/notice on microfilm or online scanned image of the newspaper. Because the issue, page and column are provided in these books, you can go directly to the microfilm page that you are interested in, instead of searching through hundreds of pages. The same is true of locating articles and notices in online scanned newspapers. The reason is that automated indexing (OCR) of digital images of 19th century digitized newspapers is notoriously incomplete because of poor quality originals and antiquated print fonts that are not completely recognized by modern OCR. By using these books as a guide you can quickly and easily go to the correct microfilmed or scanned page where the notice appears.
