MyHeritage Adds Canada Obituary Index from OldNews

On 5 July, MyHeritage added 2,597,134 new records from their Canadian OldNews collection. Name, gender, residence, death date, death place, relatives mentioned and relationship, date published, newspaper, abbreviated text.
Beware of errors in the OCR. I found a Montreal death listed as buried in Georgia, even though the burial place named in the text was Sorel.

  1. In my searches for family members, “Georgia, United States” appears almost 40% of the time as the place of death, whether the death took place in Sarnia, Toronto, or Montreal. Let’s hope MyHeritage can fix these errors by simply searching for Georgia in this records collection and replacing with the correct place of death.
