Canadian Health Obituaries Index

Known by some as the "Dead Doctor's Database" look to this collection from McGill University for obituaries or death notices of Canadian medical personal that appeared in various medical journals between 1844 and 2000.

Thanks to Ken McLeod for mentioning this during the BIFHSGO conference.

John Thanks for posting the link to this database. I believe I have found an obituary listing for a first cousin twice removed. I had few details about him other than his date of birth,that he was a doctor and had left Ontario and had been in both Alberta and Manitoba.

It will be interesting to see what details I can learn.
