Saskatchewan GenWeb Updates

Saskatchewan GenWeb's What's New page is now being supplemented by the new "blogging" services offered online. Upon the relevant Saskatchewan Gen web pages will see inclusions of "what is new" in the Saskatchewan history and genealogy scene by stories and posts now offered online. A very brief introduction to some of the new articles are listed below to help you in your genealogical endeavours.

Ancestor Recognition Project has been growing with many submitted cemetery transcriptions and cemetery photographs! All transcriptions are part of an online searchable Canada wide cemetery database at Canada GenWeb. If you can help with typing from online cemetery photograph pages or if you can submit cemetery photographs or transcriptions, please E-mail. We can provide the free webspace and web page programming here.

Saskatchewan One Room School House project "In 1979, the new School Act abolished all rural school districts which now exist only in the memory of those who cherished their little country school house." It is to assist memory preservation, and to honour the history of education in the province which gave birth to the Saskatchewan One Room School House project. With wonderful submissions from kind viewers like you, the one room school house project has grown with new photograph additions, historical reminiscences and a new database addition. The footnotes page has expanded and the alphabetical index has increased with locations of historic one room school houses. Have a look at the digital preservation of Saskatchewan One Room School Houses.

In particular, as of late, there have been a few new additions to
  •   Census Page on the Saskatchewan Gen Web Site.
  •   Saskatchewan Archives page regarding the NEW provincial website
  •   Saskatchewan One Room School House project.
  •   SK Genealogy cemeteries and schoolhouses.
  •   New Finland, Saskatchewan web pages regarding Martta Norlen's 1937-1974 scrapbook
