They may be coming but there's a problem at the moment. The links work but all I get is a Kodak greyscale image!

That's just the first page of the file Alison (Vancouver). Scroll forward to see further pages.

A great resource! I found the obits for my Grandfather and cousin. While I already had the dates, the Quarterly & Pony Express obits really make a story. Its a bit of a quessing game as to where in the 200-300 pages any particular person is mentioned but an old fashioned binary search works well.

Thanks, John - thought of that!

Looks like another family myth debunked as the mountie in the family who died on duty around the turn of the 20th century isn't there!
