Turner Valley Oilfields Death Index

The Alberta Family History Society announces that their Our Projects Committee has been at it again!

This time, they have created a NEW searchable database of over 2,500 records, called the Turner Valley Oilfields Death Index, 1998..

You just put in the surname in the search box, and if your ancestor is there, it will return the surname, given name, date of death, date of burial, the place where the person died, the cemetery where he/she is buried, and the source for the information eg obituary, newspaper article

A big “Thank You” goes out to Florence Denning, and the Our Project Committee for the amount of work in this project, and bringing it to its completion.
