Neepawa is a town in western Manitoba, north east of Brandon. Some basic tourist information can be found at the Chamber of Commerce site:[1]

The area was largely settled during 1878-1880 time period, so the 1881 and subsequent censuses are very useful resources.

When researching in the Neepawa area, you should be aware of the surrounding rural municipalities: Rosedale, Lansdowne, Langford, and Onadah virtually surround the town. You will find that Neepawa may be used as a synonym for any of these (and vise-versa).

The province of Manitoba free vital record searches will be a big help:[2]

Neepawa has a large cemetery, Riverside, whose records are searchable online [3].

An additional cemetery is located 4 miles/6 kilometres north of Neepawa in Rosedale. This cemetery has been known by a variety of names: Buchanan, Mountain View, and Rosedale.

This web site has searchable genealogy, stories and old photos of many former residents of the area and their descendants, if you click the "Buchanans and Watsons" link: [4]

The "Kelwood bridges the years, 1890-1967" history will be helpful when researching in the northern part of Rosedale Municipality. [5]
