I am originally from Glen Ewen, Saskatchewan where most of my paternal relatives lived or lives. I was back to Glen Ewen when my grand father passed away on November, 1989. It was a sad time but I was glad to get back to visit some places that I had not seen since my family left there is 1961 and moved to Alberta. Most of my relatives have now passed on and there aren't many Best's living around the area any more. Most of us have moved on to other towns and cities. Hope to get back soon to see who is left.

I was led here by a letter I received from a previously unknown relative who lives in Saskatoon. He states that his father died in 1983. I did find his fathers name in the Rosthern Town Cemetary list. So, that was helpful. But, I'm still puzzled that my family name had traveled that far to Canada. No one in my family was aware of anyone living there. Till now. I'll keep searching your genealogy databases for, hopefully, names and links of other relatives. Thank you, Bernard Kloian - Canton, Mich. USA

Can you please explain the credit line "Men of the City"? Is this an organization in Saskatoon. Certainly there were women doing lots of had work, and women frequently have something to say about what is going on. I have not had a chance yet to read your report in its entirety, but expect to soon. I am a descendant of Joseph Caswell. May I assume that you are aware of the published "Pioneer Girl" diary of MaryAnn Caswell?

Problem
Email: Billie Franklin
I found the site to be very good and interesting. I do have a problem and I hope that someone in Saskatoon can help me solve it. I am researching the following surnames in Canada: BELL, DIGGINS/DIGGON, CULL and others. My husbands Grandfather, Richard Hanna Bell is burried in Hewitt Cemetery near Weyburn. His Mother Carrie (Carolyn) Elizabeth BELL Franklin was born in Wellington County, Ontario. I found informaiton submitted by William Wilson (I believe of Saskatoon or nearby) which connects to our family. I sent him an Email but it was returned to me. His information was very accurate and was documented. I thought perhaps that he was associated with a Genealogy Association there. The Email address given was scotwill@cyg.net - Perhaps his first or middle name is Scott. Please, if anyone knows him, please have him to contact me. Billie Franklin, Corpus Bhristi, TX

So far, I have enjoyed browsing through. I have been to many sites, and they are all incomplete in some regard. Unfortunatly a lot depends on volunteers, and it takes time. This site so far has been in the top 5, on my list. I will keep looking for Sam Rock in Domremy Saskatchewan, 1870-84. Veronica

My grandfather, Ernest Edgar Bellamy, was a principal in a farm business venture called Agricultural Development Co. Ltd. close to Plenty/Ruthilda from about 1910 to 1920. It folded and my grandfather and family moved away from the area in the early 20's. If anyone has any information, I'd love to hear from you.

I am originally from the Glen Ewen area. My paternal grandparents were Joseph and Caroline Best. They are buried in the cemetary there along with some of their sibblings. I am composing a book on the Best Family. It will be printed soon and it will bring together the ones from the east to the ones that travelled out west to settle. I hope that everyone gets as much pleasure out of reading it as I did putting it all together.
