Bytown Gazette and Ottawa Advertizer
Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
Births, Marriages and Deaths, 1836-1845
August 19, 2007:
Thanks to Bob Mackett for the following contribution!
Here are some more transcribed Bytown Gazette and Ottawa Advertiser announcements
from the Paper of Record web site (http://www.paperofrecord.com) using a search on terms
DIED/BIRTH/MARRIED/residence. The OCR [optical character recognition]
process does not work too well on skewed, smudged, folded or torn papers,
so it is effective probably in less than say 20 - 50 percent of actual
announcements. Browsing PAGES 2 or 3 of the 1,188 papers Bytown Gazette
from 1836 - 1845 would be the only way to get all of announcements, a very
slow process since each page is a 1 MB download.
