For those individuals that are looking for information concerning Bible Christian Relatives selected copies of the Bible Christian Magazine are available via Google Books or at the following URL from Oxford University.
Obituaries from the Bible Christian Observer in Canada have been abstracted by Donald A. McKenzie in Volume 6: More Notices from Ontario's Methodist Papers 1858-1872 and Volume 9: More Obituaries from Ontario's Methodist Papers 1873-1884. These texts have been republished by Global Heritage Press and are available via Global Genealogy www.globalgenealogy.com or at public libraries. I would recommend however that you seek the original document once you have identified that an obituary exists in the BCO, as further information is available. The Bible Christian Observer is available at the United Church of Canada Archives in Toronto. http://www.united-church.ca/local/archives/on
