Saskatchewan Death Certificates

Today we have a question from Lyndsay regarding Saskatchewan death certificates and how to obtain them.

“I’m trying to locate my grandmother’s information.  She died in the 60′s.  My mother was born 1958 in Regina, SK, was orphaned and doesn’t know very much.  Can you please help?  Thank you.”

My reply:

Saskatchewan Vital Certificates is the official source of all vital records in Saskatchewan.  This includes birth, marriage, divorce and death certificates.   There is a fee for the use of their services.

Another suggestion is to try historic newspapers for Sask – look for either an obituary of your grandmother or perhaps a birth announcement of your mother.  Peel’s Prairie Provinces may have newspapers.  (or google for Sask newspapers or the Regina Leader Post).

Cyndislist also has links to many Sask resources. http://www.cyndislist.com/sask.htm

    Hi Joan, The url in your link can be quite confusing for those not familiar with genealogical research and resources in Saskatchewan. I find this site gives links to other Saskatchewan websites and tells you what you need to know before filling out a request for a vital record: http://www.saskarchives.com/web/services-pub-family.html

  2. Hi Xenia,
    Thanks for the feedback. I’ve written about the Sask Archives page several times and should have remembered to include it in the answer above.

    Thanks for commenting.

    Joan
