20-AUG-2017: Please note a new site is in progress.
It is a more modern and mobile
friendly site and all new updates will be posted there only.
Eventually this web address will point there as well, but until the transfer is complete this site will remain accessible

Want to add a link to my
for the only Authorized Picture Link allowed.
All my pages are now Right Click, copy and paste, disabled.
I ask everyone that enjoys free history sites,
to start to policing these violations.
If we don't stop this, no one will donate pictures to me or anyone,
and we all loose.
If you see one of my pictures on facebook, etc.
tell them to remove it.
Please Click on the Links to the left
to visit Various
Towns, and Cities
"The Land of Living Skies"
Please E-Mail me,
have any Pictures,
etc. to add,
and I always appreciate your comments.
Please take note, on
my web sites
NO ADS! (*exception)
NO Government Sponsorship!
NO Pop Ups!
*Exception- I have added a couple google
maps on some of my pages
and they probably have a few ads that come with them.
I don't control them or get paid by them.
I maintain and build these pages by myself.
I don't get paid, and I don't want to get paid for doing it.
Only money requested is not for me,
but for the ECI Legacy in Estevan.
If you like the pages, and get something out of them,
consider a Tax Deductable Donation to that cause,
in your name, not mine!
I only hope you enjoy the material.
I started out collecting
history in SE Saskatchewan
as the map above shows.
Per the index on the left I have expanded from that a bit.
Rather than see these few pictures sit in a family album
I have decided to add them for all to see.
My Pages are created to preserve History,
What you see is love
for the History of the area
and to Honour my Ancestors
that have given me what I have today.
I Am Researching The Following
Gent, Gesell, Gessell,
Twomey, Forster, & Johnston
am an Amateur Historian, and Genealogist.
I use every source I can find, old newspapers, census, archives,
I do a quick search for the names on these pages.
Therefore I do NOT profess to have 100% accurate information.
Use my info as a clue to do your own research.
I am not related to these folks, nor do I have hidden info.
I encourage everyone to visit their local Museum,
or buy a local history book for more info.
I attempt to connect people with their ancestor in these places.
If it works on just one person, per page, it is worth the time it
I do not charge for access to my pages,
I do not have any Ads on my pages.
Please "Link" to my page
from Facebook, Blogs, etc.
Please do Not copy the pictures, or text on any page.
Please do Not ask to use pictures etc. on Facebook.
A "Link" to my pages, does the same thing.
Just copy the hyper link, URL, shown in your browser above,
and paste that into facebook etc.,
or copy the links I have on the left side.
That is the honest and proper way to do it!
Pictures on my Site
I have now added a Stop Sign, to most of my pictures online,
With a Large "Copyright Photo, Do NOT
Copy" Notice in Text,
also directly on the picture, beside the Stop Sign,
for those that can't seem to see my watermark?
I do not think it will be missed anymore.
I am very sorry, the intention of my pages,
is NOT to Share these Photos, and Text,
for you to use on your Facebook Pages,
Google+, Or any other Public Viewed Web sites!
You can view these pictures on my pages, for free, all day long.
Why people think they have the right to steal these photos is beyond me.
The reason I want all the pictures, and various pages on this site,
is to encourage folks to not only learn about their local history,
but maybe even a bit about some other place in Saskatchewan or even BC!
Canadian History is great, we just don't know it.
