Dear Swift Current and Area Gen Web Community,

As RootsWeb transitions to read-only in 2024, we're thrilled to assure you that the cherished Swift Current Gen Web Project will continue to thrive and evolve. Our webpages are relocating to a new domain: Fear not; the commitment to documenting family histories, community heritage, one-room schoolhouses, cemeteries, and more remains unwavering. With the support of our growing Patreon community (, we've secured a new domain and web hosting provider. This enables us to persist year after year in preserving the rich history of Swift Current and its surroundings.

Warm regards,
The Swift Current and Area Gen Web Project Volunteer Team
