Rootsweb/Ancestry Hosted Websites that have previously been hosted on http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com are currently unavailable. We do apologize for the inconvenience this causes our visitors but we do not have any control over this issue. Ancestry.com employees are working to get the websites back up and running on the original rootsweb domain. Please bear with us during this time of transition if you are seeking genealogical resources for Saskatchewan family trees.
There had been a great many resources transcribed, digitized and photographed and uploaded to the internet on the Saskatchewan SaskGenWebRootsweb pages. From cemeteries, to public domain books and maps, ancestral biographies, family trees, and much much more. See why Ancestry has taken all the original pages of data off line
World connect includes World Gen Web- Canada Gen Web and Saskatchewan Gen Web. The varioius GenWeb Project volunteers take on a commitment to providing FREE internet access to resource and reference material information online on other websites, or by digitizing resources which are copyright free (either in the public domain or offered with permission from the copyright holder). The dedicated volunteers and submitters of information offer helpful advice to genealogical researchers by email or in FAQ formatting. As a volunteer non-commercial organization there is not any research for a fee provided nor is their a recommendation to commercial sites or researchers. Some of the volunteers do offer to provide lookups, at their convenience. The goal of the gen webs is to provide online for free quality informational pages, pertinent postal addresses or website URLs, maps, query and surname resources, and friendly email lists. Gen Web volunteers work diligently hand in hand other genealogy resource sites, so that together, there is a connection for a larger Resource network to serve the genealogist. Take the WorldConnect survey and let Ancestry/Rootsweb know that you use the rootsweb Gen Web connection network.
What possibilities there are, and all in connection with a work which will hand down the family tree, wreathed with the memories of our ancestors, in a common halo of glory!
At the current moment World Connect – family tree section is online in read only format, so users cannot do additions nor upgrades to their existing family trees. If they have received new information or if they have conducted further research, then these new items of information cannot be added to the family tree. WorldConnect allows genealogists to upload their family tree as a GEDCOM file and publish it online for others to see. The WorldConnect program is currently under evaluation by Rootsweb/Ancestry.com software engineers and security team. The plan is to have a read-only, and searchable version up in the next few weeks. However, the ability to upload new GEDCOM files will be available in the coming months.
