message = I am looking for the name of a coal company and the family who owned it, or managed it, in Bienfait around 1960 - 1965.

This company bought a lot of mining equipment from the town of Nordegg, Alberta, when the mine there was liquidated by the Alberta government. It was a gentleman who was, I think, in charge of the buying and moving of this equipment from Nordegg. He had sons who helped him, who would now be 60+, I think.

I met these people in Nordegg when the equipment was being dismantled but unfortunately, cannot remember their names.

I would love to find out the name of the family so that I can contact them with important information I would like to give them!

Hope someone, through your site, might know this and get back to me. Many thanks.

message = Hi Doug I am in England. I recently found there was one of my family who had a son who was sent to Canada by Dr Barnardos around 1906. He was a homechild. I found his attestation papers for the first world war. His address was Bienfait. His profession said farm worker. His Name was George Edwards and he was born in 1895 in England. He was wounded at the Front and sent to a Hospital in London. He married his cousin around 1918 and then I assume he came back to Canada. I just wondered are there any records kept around there that might include him? I assume he was sent to work on a farm there. Any advice would be appreciated
regards Pat Marshall

Comments: great to see some history of the place I was raised at. Although I didn't live there long (aprox 4 years) I would still like to know about the place my parents chose to live and work at when I was young, etc. Thanks for the opportunity! P.S. I remember a 1 room red brick school house, a pumphouse for the town water (and winter ice rink)
and the brand new school building for my 1st and 2nd(repeat)class. The High School was across the street from the hospital and the Halloween parade that came to the hospital when I was sick and a special lady by the name of Grandma Vaverica (she was a neighbor)she was wonderful!!! Any body remember "Baby Huey"...that was Albert my brother. Take care

Name: Dr. John Luyk
Comments: Just an addition to my first entry....
The house that we lived in did NOT have a 'loading dock' on the side but it did have the two large storage room areas in the back of the house. My folks were told that this building had once been a bank. It had a large window at the front. I wish I could remember the address. We kept a large stainless storage tank in the one back room for water so that we only needed to haul water about once a week. This hauling of water was done by carrying the water in new garbage cans in the trunk of the old '47 Chevy. I'll never forget the day that my father came home with an almost new '58 Chev Bel-Air. Sure wish that I had that one today.
Does anyone recognize the description of the house?

Name: Dr. John Luyk
Location: Burlington, Ontario
Comments: My family only lived in Bienfait for a brief time. My father was working for a construction firm doing some work in Estevan that started in early 1958. My mother, brother and I stayed in Brandon, Manitoba until the school year was finished and when we moved to Saskatchewan there was no available housing in Estevan due to an influx of oil company workers. We set up home in Bienfait living in an old two story building across from the ball diamond adjacent to the school. I attended grade 2 and my brother, grade 3 but we had to move in the spring of 1959 and moved to Selkirk, Manitoba. This building we moved into looked like it may have been some sort of business establishment earlier in the century as I remember what appeared to be some sort of loading dock area attached to the side of the house and what must have been a storage room in the back of the main floor. There was a one room building right next to it that was, at that time, occupied by an elderly woman who I think only spoke Ukrainian. My memories of Bienfait are a bit fuzzy with respect to location of the various establishments in town i.e. north-south etc. but I do have fond memories of the short time that I lived there. You have a fun site with a lot of history. Perhaps some clearer aerial photos would help me remember some building locations. Keep up the good work!

Comments: I was the doctor in Bienfait from 1953 to 1957 and along with Harry Bradley was largely responsible for the conversion of the village to a town. At the time the main purpose was to obtain a better borrowing power so that waterworks and sewage could be obtained and also help relocate miners who were living out at the M&S mines which were going to be closed. There is a lot of interesting history related to that and I still have some of the original plans drawn up at the time. You should be beginning to think about your 50th anniversary of incorporation as a town.

Comments: April 01,2001. Our family is in the process of compiling family history and in the process of following up on the Backers, Wards and the Moores from the Frobisher area I came across this web page on my home town web page. I was born in Estevan, Saskatchewan and lived with my parents Walter and Vivian Backer in Bienfiet , Saskatchewan where my father taught school in the late 1950,s and also taught school in Frobisher. I have memories of chasing the sound of the firealarm and being the first kid to the firehall to try to get on the truck as father was also a member of the Voluntary fire dept. Its funny how lights and sirens attract kids. I now reside in Spirit River ,Alberta which is 60 miles east of Mile 0 of the Alaska Highway were I am a Conservation Officer for the Government of Alberta.

Comments: I lived in Bienfait from when I was 7 till I was 15. Many fond memories of Bienfait come to mind whenever hearing the name of Bienfait. My dad was the mayor for nine years and was the founding member of the Bienfait Museum. To this day, I still like to go back and visit and see the changes. So many new faces now that no one knows who I am anymore though. Thank you so much for the information on Bienfait. It is interesting to read the history of a place that I lived some of my life in and never knew its history. Thanks.
