How to find an obituary or Death Record

Gloria asked:
How can I find a death record and/or obituary for Ida Jane Pell in October 1946 in Edmondton.

I know she lived there as I have a street address.

Olive Tree Answer: Gloria, the first thing you will have to do to find an obituary is find out what newspapers were published for Edmonton in that year. To find a death record you need to know if Alberta Vital Registrations are available to the public for 1946. Have you tried the Alberta GenWeb? They should have the information you need re newspapers and vital statistics.

I think you should also read the Ancestor Death Record Finder for more help. There are ideas and links to guide you.

Last but not least you might also try the Canadian Births or Baptism, Deaths and Marraiges Exchange
