Many genealogical societies, historical societies, museums, and other groups have special projects that they are doing that will be of benefit to the genealogical community. This page will be a space to list the projects and provide contact addresses for those who wish to help or to know more about the projects being undertaken.

Other projects that would be useful to do

Are there any volunteers who would be willing to contact publishers of local history books, and also to help transcribe the indices of thes books to put online?

Are there any exising documents of genealogical, historical or geographical interest to Saskatchewan typed up and saved as a computer file?

Are there volunteers willing to transcribe any such documents? Then it should be fairly easy to convert to HTML and create a web page for it here. The volunteer and source would be acknowledged. Or if you would like the database on your own site, we (Saskatchewan GenWeb) could convert it to HTML for their own website and create a link to it from Sask Gen Web.

Would you like to help out with the above projects or a portion of them?
