  • Look up Database :
    Would you be able to provide a look up service to other researchers in the Yorkton Regional Gen Web project? Do you have a book or other reference resource invaluable to a genealogist ie it may provide: names, dates, history or location?

    Do you possess 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 Companies, Church Books, and Cattle Brand Books, School Records, Church lists, Homestead maps, etc.? These are valuable records listing the names of community residents that deserve preservation. Sharing or digitizing such documents can prevent the loss of primary source materials for family genealogists. As we embark on the journey of preserving and commemorating the dynamic history of the Regina project and its surroundings, your active involvement is indispensable. Whether you have memories related to historical maps, one-room schoolhouses, cemetery headstones, transcriptions, yearbooks, directories, or historical letters, your contributions can significantly enrich the understanding of fellow researchers tracing their family trees and histories.
