Site dedicated to my late wife
Maureen A. Gent, nee Twomey

May 30, 1956-Sept 30, 2022

This site is an assortment of Free Access History Pages for SE Saskatchewan, North-West BC, and various other places in Canada.

All My Pages are Ad Free, Pop-up Free, Cookie Free, and Access Free!

All I ask in return is to NOT copy any of the pictures for another online site,
This is not a Public Photo Sharing site.

I don't think that is too much to ask, but still are a few that ignore the warnings.

This new layout will offer many new features, it will be easier to navigate and easier for us to update.
Some examples of the new features:

  • The site is fully “Responsive” which means it should work well on phones, tablets or desktops
  • In the top toolbar you can click this icon: to increase the the width of the content (ie. remove the whitespace on either side of this page.
  • A lot of information will be converted into searchable/sort-able tables. See Coal Mine Index as an example
  • Note top right you will see a seach box. I think it is the best feature of the new format. It works fast, and is very accurate. Give that a try for sure!
  • New Search Bar, Top of Each Page in this Site
  • Cell Phone Image
  • You can now share any page on this site, on Facebook, Twitter, etc. from this icon, near top right of each page
  • You can use the indexes to the right or above as a starting point or click here for a complete  Index
Photo Donators remain the owners, and or copyright holder if applicable, of the Photos sent to me. They are on this site to add to the text, and story, You may link to the Page they are located on only! Please understand- Asking permission to use the photos, requires many hours of my time locating the original donator, and in some cases can't be done, due to email changes. Please do not ask!

Please note- I add the genealogy information on some pages, for researchers trying to find that one little clue for their family tree. I try not to add any info that would enter into privacy issues, if I have by mistake, please contact me ASAP.

Once you enter the site, you will see an Index on the Left side, in Lap Top view, (or click on 3 bar symbol, top right in cell Phone view), you can use that Index to advance to whatever page you wish to view.

This is a Family Owned and Operated Web Site, I have NO connection with any Major or Minor Genealogy Sites, or any Paid Sponsor.

You will see some External Links to other sites, at the bottom of some pages, for reference purposes only, I do NOT get paid by any of those links.

The Old html Site is now fully linked to this new site. The old html site pages are NOT updated, so I recommend NOT using them.
The only reason we have carried them forward is I might have missed some info in the transfer / transition period.

Note- These web pages cover only the European, Asian and American History of this area, over the last hundred years or so. I will leave the First Nations to record and publish their own history, as I have limited information available to me, and I am not First Nation Ancestry, so have no right to do that. The term “Indian” is used in my site, where it is the historically accurate term, in regards to job titles etc., and is not meant in any derogatory way. If the term is being quoted from a book, census form, etc, then it will be written in my pages that way. I don't personally agree with the way the Europeans came and took over this land, but unlike what some think, you can not erase history. You learn from history so the mistakes are not made again. Just as it is extremely important to have a record of First Nation history in Canada, I also feel these other men and women need their history saved. This is the purpose of my web page.
