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. A transcription can be found here [4] and another found here [5]

This web site has searchable genealogy, stories and old photos of hundreds of former residents of the area and their descendants, if you click the "Buchanans and Watsons" link: [6]

The "Kelwood bridges the years, 1890-1967" history will be helpful when researching in the northern part of Rosedale Municipality. [7]
