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 ( 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.
