Saskatchewan Historic Newspapers Online

The Saskatchewan Archives, in partnership with Saskatchewan History Online, is pleased to announce the launch of a new online tool called ‘Saskatchewan Historic Newspapers Online’ (SHNO).

This is the beginning of a new multi-year project which, once completed, will provide online access to all weekly newspapers from 1878–1964 held within the Saskatchewan Archives Collection. The current release focuses on the early years of the First World War, featuring local weekly newspapers from English, French, German, and Ukrainian communities across Saskatchewan.

During the first installation of the Saskatchewan newspaper online program, it will focus on the period from 1878 through to the mid-1960s. The first stage of the project will focus upon Saskatchewan newspapers published during the Great War period, from January 1914 through to the end of hostilities in 1918.

This sounds exciting!
