About


Saskatchewan Genealogy Resources Original Pages 

Saskatchewan genealogy has deep roots in First Nations, fur trading and Metis history.  There have been several evolutionary changes in the geographical history.  Canada received Rupert's Land from the United Kingdom and the Hudson's Bay Company 1670.  July 15, 1870 Rupert's Land the the North-Western Territory become the North-West Territories.  Then, September 1, 1905, Saskatchewan became a province, and was officially inaugurated September 4.

Under Prime Minister Wilfrid Laurier,  Minister of the Interior Clifford Sifton initiated a massive immigration policy with colonial offices established in Europe and the United States.  Huge numbers of immigrants arrived to Canada''s "Last Best West" between 1891-1914.  

Genealogical research in Saskatchewan is fascinating, challenging and rewarding.  Saskatchewan Genealogy Resources, is a part of Saskatchewan Gen Web, and is designed to guide the family historian to available research materials.  Saskatchewan Gen Web and its local regions have invaluable searchable databases online through the mailing lists and query boards to help you connect to fellow researchers.
