Sask Gen Web for kids

SaskGenWeb For Kids of all ages is back online!

There are special genealogical posting boards for kids looking for family roots. If you are a kid visiting this page, please use this board to ask for help to find your great great grandparents, cousins, etc. If you are an adult visiting this page, check out this board often to see if you can be of assistance to these junior genealogists.

Besides posting family tree queries, on the SaskGenWeb For Kids webpages there are crytograms, word search puzzles, crosswords, fill in the blanks, quizzes, online interactive games, and much more.  Fun for both kids and adults.

There is also family research and genealogical ideas for parents and teachers

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.

Rootsweb/Ancestry.com has been faced with maintenance issues since December of 2017. They are reaching out to the public to know what they think about World Connect AND rootsweb – the World Gen Web pages which include such sites as Canada Gen Web, US Gen Web and so much more.

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.
