Online Resources for researching your Saskatchewan Roots

Saskatchewan got its name from the Cree word "Kis-is-ska-tche-wan"; which means swift current, the river that looks back as it turns.

We hope you enjoy looking back, and here are some resources to help you flow more swiftly in your genealogical research.

Saskatchewan Family History Books

There have been quite a few regional family history books published, quite a few of them in the year 1981. 1980 was Saskatchewan's 75th birthday or anniversary celebration since Saskatchewan entered confederation in 1905 as a province. Previously the area of Saskatchewan was a district of the North West Territories. They include a history of the town, and area, local clubs and events, as well as any family biographies individually submitted by the local families.
