Saskatchewan Gen Web - Saskatchewan Placenames serves genealogists and historians by offering resources and research tips to locate bygone places of Saskatchewan,  those places of duplicate name, obscure placenames found on ancestral correspondence or the ancestral homestead.

By locating the placename, other resources can be pinpointed such as cemetery records, anniversary history books, local history committees, genealogy societies, maps, homesteads, schools, churches, census information, Henderson's directories and so much more.  A genealogist seeks information by tracking what is known to what is unknown in three main domains of research, the ancestral family name, the family progression through time locating birth, death, and marriage certificates, and by ascertaining the family home location.

For an alphabetical listing of Saskatchewan placenames, name changes please check out Saskatchewan Placenames, a project of Saskatchewan Gen Web.  This listing corresponds the placename to the region of Saskatchewan Gen Web to locate mailing lists,  query boards, connect to other researchers and cousins as well as to find further local information
