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
Ron Isherwood October 09, 1946 – August 09, 2017 enjoyed working on his Saskatchewan Cemeteries Project, and he also had enjoyed doing genealogy research. Thank you very kindly to the many contributions made by Ron Isherwood, and for his dedication to the Saskatchewan Cemeteries Project, indeed.
The Saskatchewan Cemeteries Project which is now restored and operational online after the hiatus between December 2017 and September 2018. The Saskatchewan Cemeteries Project is not being updated after 2017, but is kept online in an archived status thanks to Ancestry.com Rootsweb.
Thank you kindly for the hours of dedicated work put into the web pages by the many Saskatchewan Gen Web volunteers, and those who had submitted information, pictures and resources to the Saskatchewan gen web project on Ancestry/rootsweb your interest and dedication was simply amazing and appreciated by so many! The original Saskatchewan Gen Web https://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~cansk is back up and running Thank you to Rootsweb – Ancestry IT department for restoring and preserving the data submitted by volunteers and submitters as of September 2018
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
Please be patient, Saskatchewan Gen Web is coming back online!!! Woo hoo! Ancestry.com has taken all the webpages of the World Gen Web offline which were online utilizing the hosting capacity of Rootsweb. Ancestry.com has been in the process of maintenance since December 2017.
Why? “We believe the intrusion was limited to the RootsWeb surname list, where someone was able to create the file of older RootsWeb usernames and passwords as a direct result of how part of this open community was set up, an issue we are working to rectify. ” Tony Blackham, Ancestry.com’s CISO said.
RootsWeb began as a volunteer driven collective of people with an interest in genealogy who came together to host and share genealogical information online. Rootsweb was purchased by Ancestry in 2000. In the summer of 2008 MyFamily.com bought out Rootsweb and Ancestry.com RootsWeb provides resources online including webspace for volunteer web hosts, mailing lists, message boards for family genealogists to make connections through the WorldGenWeb project. Rootsweb with its surname mailing lists, is the oldest free online community genealogy research site.
There were many thousands of pages of data, and documentation online for the genealogist researching their family tree in the province of Saskatchewan, Canada.
Saskatchewan Wheat Pool Maps, historic train maps and guides, cemetery transcriptions and cemetery photographs, book indexing, book transcriptions, biographical accounts, letters, information and history about teachers, superintendents of the many Saskatchewan one room school house districts. All of these pages placed online by dedicated volunteers are now offline until the employees Ancestry.com IT department can fix the glitch. We are very sorry for the inconvenience. For more information about the status of the maintenance please see this page
WE invite your comments, and we hope you enjoy the new format, and stay tuned for further updates and developments as the new Saskatchewan Gen Web grows online!
Saskatchewan Gen Web was originally online at http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~cansk Check periodically at the old link http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~cansk for updates by the ancestry team as to the status of the old Saskatchewan Gen Web, meanwhile, the rebirth will begin here. Thank you kindly for the hours of dedicated work put into the web pages by the Saskatchewan Gen Web volunteers and Regional volunteers, your work was simply amazing and appreciated by so many! Looking to the future when the original site is restored online by Ancestry.com
The Canada Gen Web Cemetery Project has restructured their web pages, so that the index is available. The Ancestor Remembrance Project, and the Saskatchewan Cemeteries Project are down at this time, as they were both hosted on Ancestry/Rootsweb.com. There is no time frame as to when the original cemetery transcription and photograph pages will be again up and running ;-( However, we will post news on this web site, which has started up in the interim.
Grieve with the heart; let not the head
Grieve on, when grief of heart is dead:
No, not that anguish! Christ forbid
That I should raise such dead! I rose,
Stifled the mouth with lilies, hid
Those eyes, and drew the long hair close,
And shut the coffin lid.
In the high memory that the desolate heart
Shrines and is dumb, yet may for ever keep
Unforbidden, the imperishable part,
And what Love held, awake, he holds, asleep.
It is hoped that the Saskatchewan Gen Web will soon be up and running again, with the resources for genealogists again online. At this time the Saskatchewan Gen Web Mailing Lists are operational 😉
