Throughout much of the 19th century, Canadian newspaper obituaries were succinct, often resembling tombstone inscriptions with basic details such as names, birthdates, and death dates. As Canada grew and diversified, particularly following significant events like the Confederation and the two World Wars, obituaries began to include richer biographical details, reflecting the deceased's life story, achievements, and community involvement. By the mid-20th century, influenced by both societal changes and the practices of funeral homes, standardized obituary formats became common. These typically featured a death announcement, a brief biography, a list of survivors, and details about funeral arrangements. Today, obituaries in Canadian newspapers continue to serve as vital historical documents, preserving the personal legacies of individuals and offering invaluable insights for genealogical research.<br><br>The records in this collection were extracted using machine learning technology and may contain mistakes due to Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology and the automatic extraction. Users are encouraged to fix such mistakes using the “Suggest an alternative” feature that is found on every record page.<br>Images for these newspapers can be viewed on <a href="https://www.oldnews.com/en" target="blank">OldNews.com</a>.
