Coilbound Edition

This book was originally published in 1979 by the Ottawa branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society. This is a facsimile edition of the original 1979 book.

Birth, marriage and death announcements of apparent Canadian relevance are cited as well as news reports of acciental deaths. The abstracts are not literal transcripts but information of genealogical interest has been retained including names of employers, ministers and priests to aid in identification.

Spellings are conserved, but dates were sometimes surmised from days of the week, along with terms like "last ", "ultimo" and "instant ".

The two newspapers, cited herein from three reels of microfilm in the Ottawa Public Library, represent the first two published in Bytown (later known as Ottawa). Approximately one -third of the 500 issues were missing , but additional issues were added even during the course of the transcription. Of course some contained no announcements, and by no means were all events in the town and region were reported in the newspapers.

Here is an example of entries published in the 26 September 1838 issue of the Bytown Gazette:

Contents include:
  • Introduction
  • Birth, Marriage and Death Abstracts
