Why Should I be co-ordinator of a Sask Gen web Region?
World wide visitors to Sask Gen Web Regions site often have specific questions about how to do genealogical research in a particular area. Perhaps you have researched your family history in this area or had a prior residence here, which may help you feel familiar with this area. Maybe you curerntly live in this region and can help Internet visitors to connect to their family history locally . (Regional maps and borders defined.)
What Do I Need?
Rootsweb supplies the web space for the Sask Gen Web Regions.
Information for Regional Gen Webmasters:
- World Gen Web Frequently Asked Questions from World Gen Web
- Information for Volunteers Canada Gen Web Project - Organizational History, Policy and Procedures
- Rootsweb Webmaster FAQs

What Is Expected Of Me?
Use whatever time and resources you can commit to build, create and update regional web sites. Answer any e-mail messages that might come your way. Most regional web pages have enough information online to answer frequently asked questions. Any research questions are directed to the regional posting boards or mailing lists, so you aren't expected to do ancestral genealogy research. The regional Gen Web Coordinator is the local link for the world wide internet researcher who does not know this area. The main duty would be to gather information pertinent to the region and create webpages that help researchers gain access to public records, history, data, and other useful items and present it visually online using HTML. The regional Gen Web Coordinator would answer email from researchers when they are lost and do not know who to contact for their research questions. Hosts provide links to query message boards and may even host a local mail list / posting board. The regional Gen Web Coordinator is appointed by the Saskatchewan Provincial Coordinator.
More Regional Hosting Information
If you have quite a bit of information regarding a specific gen web region, but a coordinator is already in place, you might consider contacting the gen web region coordinator or provincial Sask Gen Web host to offer your help as an assistant coordinator or, you could offer any data such as a transcribed index, or data of a general nature related to the county in question would be welcomed.
How Do I become involved?
Just e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Tell me which region(s) you'd like to host, and I'll add it to my list.
