Family Histories Index
We have prepared this area of the MHSS.sk.ca website for family histories. If you have already built a website with your family history on it, you can send us the link and we will provide a link to your site and family history.
If your family history is not on a web site, but it is written up on a computer, you can contact Ruth, our web-master, about putting a digital version up on our MHSS site. (Naturally, the MHSS Board supervises/controls what appears on the site). Use our Reach Us Form.
Publishing your family history this way allows others to read it and perhaps contact you if they think they could be related to you.
We would like to encourage everyone to get their family history written up, perhaps by a relative, if you are not able to do it yourself.
You can reach Ruth through the contact page on the web site, or 306-956-7785 in the evening.

Family Histories on Other Websites
Cliff Wall's Remembering Our Heritage is a book of over 575 pages, which he has placed on a website to read. This contains several family histories tied together. One that has been especially brought to our attention because of the tie in to Saskatchewan, is the Johann Neufeld family of Waldheim, Saskatchewan. Their family history is covered in pages 29 through 76 in Wall's book.
You can check out the other families in their book by clicking on "Contents" on the top of their website pages.
