Day Pass Offered at Saskatchwan Genealogical Society

This caught my eye this afternoon on the Saskatchewan Genealogical Society website this afternoon. They are now offering a $10.00 day pass for non-members to access "members only" databases!

The Burial Index, the Obituaries Index, and the Cummins Rural Directory Index are now offered.

Go to their website at http://www.saskgenealogy.com/ or contact sgslibrary@sasktel.net
