Salt Spring Island Parish & Home Index (courtesy Tia Leschke)

Note: This index is an ongoing project which will be added to as copies of the original newsletters are scanned.
There are no page numbers as each issue is only two pages long.
Moon phases and the Kuper Island weather report are included in each issue starting with March of 1896.
