I have about 30 history books and am very willing to do lookups. They are posted on Book We Own - Saskatchewan at and also on the appropriate pages of the SaskGenWeb site. I'll include a list below in case you want to get in touch through this list.

I encourage anyone with a few books to post them on a website. It's very rewarding to help someone find their long lost family. I get queries from all over the world.

My most recent books purchases aren't listed on BWO as yet:
Next Year Country - Scotsguard and area
The Frontiersmen 1967 (not indexed) - Frontier and area

I also have one Alberta book which I found at a local thrift store and couldn't pass up:
Big Hill Country -- Cochrane and area.

There are more and more of these books scanned and on the website. Worth a look.
