Dear Online Historical Map Digitization Project Enthusiasts,|
As the sun sets on the familiar chapters of RootsWeb and Ancestry, we eagerly embrace the dawn of a new era for our beloved project. Welcome to the rejuvenated https://www.patreon.com/SaskGenWebOnline Historical Map Digitization project at our new digital home: https://saskgenweb.ca/canmaps/. The existing pages may transition to a format without updates and new additions in 2024, but fear not; our commitment to unraveling Saskatchewan's genealogy, history, and community heritage remains steadfast.
Our dedicated volunteers, the architects of this labor of love, are poised to continue the exploration of Saskatchewan's rich tapestry. Together, we document family histories, illuminate the corridors of one-room schoolhouses, and preserve the whispers of time etched on cemetery headstones. Our journey encompasses the intricacies of historical maps and the diverse placenames that define Saskatchewan's landscape.
With the unwavering support of our growing Patreon community (https://www.patreon.com/SaskGenWeb), we've secured a new domain and web hosting provider. This ensures the ongoing vitality of our project, and we extend a warm invitation for you to join us in this exciting venture. Immerse yourself in the revamped webpages at https://saskgenweb.ca/canmaps/ and witness the unfolding narratives of Saskatchewan's past.
Beyond this transformative shift, we invite you to be an integral part of our ongoing story. Explore the rejuvenated Online Historical Map Digitization project and consider contributing through Patreon to ensure its enduring presence. Our heartfelt thanks to Ancestry.com and Rootsweb.com for their years of free hosting; now, we seek your support in sustaining our venture through paid web hosting.
Welcome to the revitalized Online Historical Map Digitization project! Your enthusiasm and support resonate as we continue to preserve and share the historical treasures of Saskatchewan.

A few like Cater (moved from T15 to T51) and some others where the Township and Range were swapped are major moves.
The date has to be some time after 1917 as Canadian National is shown rather than Grand Trunk Pacific and Canadian Northern. I did leave the line from Regina to Saskatoon identified as "Pac." "Nat." (kind of funny). That line was built and first leased to Canadian Pacific, then transferred to Canadian Northern which then became Canadian National.
Some spelling errors such as in T6 R29 W2 Molraney which is Mullrany.
It appears that the rural Post Offices were not kept up to date when they closed, so if a certain date for the map could be found some Post Offices would not be on the map. For example in T49 R23 W3
Guestwick 1909-06-15 1915-03-31
Dee Valley 1916-07-14 1932-07-29
Hope this version is a little easier to read.
