Dear Valued Visitors of Saskatchewan GenWeb's New Domain,
We're delighted to welcome you to our new digital abode at https://saskgenweb.ca/cansk/Saskatchewan! If you've been a traveler through the pathways of the Provincial Saskatchewan GenWeb site hosted by Rootsweb and Ancestry, to find that they have become static without updates nor upgrades, fret not—our webpages will not only endure but thrive at this new domain.
A New Chapter Unfolds:
This is not just a change of address; it's the dawn of a new chapter in documenting the rich tapestry of Saskatchewan's history. The one-room schoolhouses, cemetery headstones, historical maps, and the myriad of placenames will continue to find a digital home here.
Patreon: Fueling the Future:
The heartbeat of this endeavor is our Patreon community. Their support ensures not only the financing of this project for the current year but paves the way for future years. It's a collective effort where every contribution propels us forward.
The Saskatchewan GenWeb Mission Persists:
As volunteers diligently place new information and updates online, we're excited to persist in this labor of love. Your visits, support, and enthusiasm make it possible for us to continue unearthing and preserving the stories of the past.
The Journey to Sustain History:
The new domain and web hosting provider stand as pillars, thanks to the incredible support from our growing Patreon community. We're not just looking at this as a one-time venture but a sustained effort year after year.
Support Us on Patreon:
Behind every update and every historical map scanned, there's a team of dedicated volunteers. If you find our service beneficial, consider supporting us through Patreon. Your contribution is an investment in preserving Saskatchewan's history.
Gratitude to Ancestry.com and Rootsweb.com:
A heartfelt thank you to Ancestry.com and Rootsweb.com for providing the foundation. Now, as we transition, we seek your support in finding paid web hosting. Your backing ensures a lasting legacy.
Consider supporting our efforts to document memories and enrich knowledge about Saskatchewan, and places.
An appeal is made to preserve invaluable documents like old telephone books, Henderson's directories, city directories, pioneer photos, letters, books, town directories, co-op membership books, credit union and elevator books, grain company records, church books, cattle brand books, school records, church lists, homestead maps, and more. These documents list names of community residents and should be preserved. Placing them online or duplicating them will help prevent the loss of primary source documents for family genealogists
Thank you for being a cherished part of our community. Your passion for history fuels our dedication.
The Saskatchewan GenWeb Volunteer Team
