Canadian Necrology Website??

Not sure if you know what the Canadian Necrology Website is?

It is an online reference tool available through UofT that is freely accessible. It may be a useful tool for people interested in looking up obituaries of prominent and lesser known Canadians. This one is created by the University of Toronto and most of the information comes from newspapers such as the Globe, the Star and the Gazette [Montreal]. This site covers information from the late 18th century to 1977.

Check it out at: http://link.library.utoronto.ca/necrology/

Also, for those of you interested in looking up Whitby people, the Whitby Public Library has a local newspaper index too that is available (and searchable) online.

Thank you, Krista Jorgensen for this information.
