Saskatchewan History and Ethnic Roots

Saskatchewan Ethnic Cultural Network
These links relate to historical information about Saskatchewan and also to its people. As many people emigrated to Saskatchewan, an international genealogy site such as World Gen Web will help locate genealogy resources in other countries. These links included here on this page are ethnic and cultural sites which have some resources or references to the cultural diversity of immigrant and indigenous peoples and settlements in Saskatchewan. To follow up and obtain more information on a specific town or settlement please use the Regional Saskatchewan Gen Web Sites.
To submit new biographies of Saskatchewan pioneers sharing online Saskatchewan's rich cultural diversity. This lets you connect with others in your research, it lets us know where you are at now, and where you have Saskatchewan Roots which enables you to meet other genealogists with similar interests while at the same time sharing online Saskatchewan's rich cultural diversity
To determine the number of people residing in the various Saskatchewan communities in 1901, 1906, 1911, and 1916 please use the 1916 Census Statistics website. This site will also give the population origins or dominant races in the cities of Regina, and Saskatoon and for the province as a whole.
For maps showing ethnic bloc settlements and the various Saskatchewan boundaries (part of North West Territories 1882-1905, and part of Rupert's Land 1667-1882) , the website Atlas of Saskatchewan edited by K.I.Fung has selected maps available online from the original book.
Many links refer to immigration to North America: For many immigrants New York or Halifax was just the half-way point. President Lincoln's U.S. Homestead Act was passed in 1862. In 1872, Canada passed the Dominion Lands Act attracting homesteaders to the West. There was migration of homesteaders between America and Canada, however records of immigration from USA into Canada didn't begin until 1908-18.
