FamilySearch adds Saskatchewan Cemetery Transcripts

Added to the sources for Saskatchewan burials are 164,737 index records covering 1850 and 1994 at FamilySearch. These are transcripts of tombstones from various unidentified cemeteries in the province made available by the Saskatchewan Genealogical Society.

There are other, better sources.

Ancestry has 274,801 records in an All Saskatchewan, Canada, Burial Index, 1802-2011.

There's a Rootsweb hosted Saskatchewan Cemeteries Project with entries from over 3,300 cemeteries.

An SGS database has over 500,000 records of individuals buried in cemeteries and/or burial sites in 299 rural municipalities in the province but the results returned by the free search are not very informative.
