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. Each province has different laws regarding privacy; it may be 50, 70, or 100 years before a record may be made public.

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 photograph headstones and create records very helpful for out-of-town researchers.

Weyburn Help - Query Boards, Lookup Requests

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.

Volunteers who have books or other resources on the Weyburn area will 'look up' your ancestor/s in their reference materials. Download the Lookups Excel spreadsheet to see what resources are available by area.
