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 Historical Map Digitization project at our new digital home: 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 (, 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 and witness the unfolding narratives of Saskatchewan's past.
