Weyburn GenWeb Home
The Weyburn Regional GenWeb Project is a resource directory to help you research your family lines in the southeastern Saskatchewan area of Weyburn. Our collection contains resource links, lists of genealogical and historical societies, and more via various online forums such as:
- website links to online databases
- genealogical records
- posting boards (great place to get help)
- mailing lists (another great place for help)
- surname pages which show research already in progress
- look up volunteers with books that may mention your ancestors
Change is Hard
A new webmaster's been redesigning and reorganizing stuff. The old pages had many broken links and outdated emails. If you're having problems with ANY new pages, links, or finding what you need, drop me a line. Any feedback, suggestions, questions, or just a Hi! are welcome.
Look Beyond Internet Records
Most of Canadian records are NOT available online. Those that are can be found at places like:
Records are kept in city/town archives, museums, historical or heritage societies. Churches kept birth, marriage, and death records, although you need to ask where their records are archived.
Cemeteries hold a wealth of information; often entire families were laid to rest together. If you can't visit personally but you know the cemetery's name, check Find a Grave. Volunteers may be able to photograph headstones or send information to out-of-town researchers.
Share your Weyburn area findings
Drop our webmaster a note if you can share things like:
- local family histories, memoirs, diaries, family trees
- local histories, old phone or business directories
- links to relevant websites
- success stories--what resources or research techniques have worked for you
Lookup Volunteers have documents relating to the Weyburn area and are willing to check them for names of your family members. We may be able to scan and digitize books that are no longer under copyright restrictions. Let us know who you are researching so we can grow our Surnames page. Just drop our Webmaster a note.
We aren't able to do you research for you, but do offer guidance on resources to check. The best way to ask for help is to post a Query on the Weyburn Query board. That's the best place to ask for help and connect with other area researchers.
