What's New ~ Volume 12 ~ August 2019
Saskatchewan Gen Web
- It is with great excitement to annouce that Saskatchewan Gen Web is back online, and can also be updated. For a time RootsWeb was Unavailable Recovery strategies were put into place.
Saskatchewan Gen Web was hosted on Site 123 https://saskgenweb.site123.me/ to place updates online there until Rootsweb hosted sites could again be accessed. Over the next little while, the Site 123 updates will be placed on to the Rootsweb server at https://sites.rootsweb.com/~cansk/Saskatchewan/. But it is very good to say that updates are starting to happen on the original Saskatchewan Gen Web the Rootsweb server at https://sites.rootsweb.com/~cansk/Saskatchewan/
- It is with great sadness that we saw the passing of Ron Isherwood October 9, 1946 - August 9, 2017 Ron had enjoyed working on the Saskatchewan Cemeteries Project. To honour his dedication, a group of volunteers are continuing on in this project, enabling updates to this wonderful work started. If you would like to also be part of this legacy, please email
- The Saskatchewan One Room Schoolhouse Project also received updates at Site 123 https://skschool.site123.me/ while rootsweb was down. These wonderful updates to the Saskatchewan One Room Schoolhouse Project will also be merged to the original Rootsweb site at Saskatchewan One Room Schoolhouse Project https://sites.rootsweb.com/~cansk/school/
- your patience was appreciated during this time of transition. The regional web sites have been updated, and the work will begin to merge the Site 123 with the original Rootsweb pages. If anyone would like to volunteer to be regional gen web hosts, that would be wonderful. It is a very rewarding position to assist genealogists and historical researchers via the online web pages, indeed.
