CCGS is extracting births, marriages, and deaths (BMD) from the Sidney By-way and transcribing the entries. The transcriptions are being published in the CCGS Quarterly and posted to the members-only section of the website. Also, the transcriptions are indexed by surname and the year the Sidney By-way newspaper was published. Below are the birth, marriage, and death indexes for the records transcribed to date. The marriage index is organized by the groom’s surname and the bride’s surname follows the dash.
