Those who participated in the first class of the Saskatchewan Researchers Certification Program recognized the need for a guide to Saskatchewan sources which would assist family history researchers. They worked with Laura Hanowski, the librarian and education co­ordinatorfor the Saskatchewan Genealogical Society, to produce a book to serve the needs of those tracing their ancestors who had lived in Saskatchewan.

Tracing Your Saskatchewan Ancestors contains detailed explanations about each record group showing when and why it was created, where you will find the records today and how and why you would want to access them. In addition to these Saskatchewan records, there are chapters or sections devoted to federal records such as immigration, military, naturalization and National Registration.

Readers of this book will learn what records are available, the time frame they cover, where they are found and what areas of research they cover. Particular emphasis is placed on learning why the records are important and how you would use them to find more information. While emphasis is placed on how to use these records in Saskatchewan the book also explains how to access them from other parts of the world. Internet addresses for important Saskatchewan resources have been provided. The book is meant to be used as a guide. Note space has been provided so you can add your own notes.
