Canada Gotoarrow.png Saskatchewan Gotoarrow.png Record Selection Table

This table can help you decide which records to search in Saskatchewan. It is most helpful for post-1800 research.

1. In column 1 find the goal you selected.

2. In column 2 find the types of records most likely to have the information you need.

3. In column 3 find additional record types that may be useful.

4. Then look for the record type you need in the Locality Search of the FamilySearch Catalog.

Note: Records of previous research (genealogy, biography, history, periodicals, and societies) are useful for most goals, but are not listed unless they are especially helpful.
