Family History Research

The Provincial Archives is a major resource centre for family history research related to Saskatchewan families.  In addition to housing significant record collections with genealogical value such as the homestead files for land located within the province’s boundaries, the Archives’ experienced and knowledgeable staff is trained to help family historians locate records in the Archives’ Collection and to provide referrals to resources held in other institutions across Canada.
