So go for it - find your Saskatchewan ancestors and all the interesting articles that capture the stories of their lives.
Please note that I have not always entered the dates that are included in the collections, as I suspect they will change as more items are digitized. Also I suspect that some of these links may change over time - so if there is a dead link - please use your favorite search engine to find their new location.

Links to Follow:
There are several ways to keep up with new collections as they are digitized and made available online. Three of my favorites:
- Historical Canadian Newspapers Online from Bowling Green State University
- Can Genealogy Historical Newspapers
- Active History - a professor from York University periodically provides updates on the state of the online historical newspaper "scene" in Canada
Please note - even more may be available via a local or provincial library where a library card is required. And of course there is always microfilm for those that have not been made available online as yet.
Good luck and happy hunting!
