Saskatchewan Gen Web records ~ What You Can Learn From Them

The SaskatchewanGenWeb Project serves to answer the growing needs of genealogists world-wide who were trying to research their ancestors online who may have roots in Saskatchewan. The SaskatchewanGenWeb is an online website hosted by researchers who either live in their own region or who are familiar with the local resources becoming an online resource for international genealogists. Look at how to make the best use of SaskatchewanGenWeb Project records, and explore the depths of information provided

There are dedicated volunteers who have donated their time and talents to the formation and creation of this project, and to these individuals, thank you kindly. There is always a search for more volunteers, if you have an interest in Saskatchewan and its history, genealogy or family history. A GenWeb site is generally used as a learning tool or stepping stone for researchers hoping to learn more about their geographical area of research, coordinators create web pages which answer questions or point researchers in the direction they need.

The GenWeb common goal is the collection and distribution of genealogical data on the Web. Gratefully, researchers seeking Canadian roots find a plethora of Canadian information available on the Internet. The role of the Canada GenWeb Project is to assist researchers in locating this information, as well as to add new resources to the existing online data.

The provincial website is the gateway linking to the local regional areas therefore you can get closer to your area of research by visiting the regional GenWebs and connect with area residents and fellow researchers.
