On-line Databases:

The following databases are on our website to assist researchers:

  • Saskatchewan Residents Index (SRI) – an index of over 3 million names of former and present residents within Saskatchewan.  The names have been extracted from local history books and other Saskatchewan resources such as Henderson directories, cemetery files, census records, school year books, etc.  The SRI contains name, location and source information; a valuable tool for the researcher.  This is an ongoing project that is done by volunteers.
  • Burial Index – an index of burial information for approximately 500,000 individuals buried in Saskatchewan.  The records to these cemeteries are located in our library and can be accessed by anyone in the library.  This is an ongoing project that is done by volunteers.
  • Obituary Index – an index of obituary information for approximately 750,000 individuals.  This collection is located in our library and can be accessed by anyone in the library.  A portion of this is online and will continue to be added to.  This is an ongoing project that is done by volunteers.
  • Cummins Maps – Cummins Maps contain the name and location of individuals living in Saskatchewan during the 1920s.  Maps have been digitized for easy viewing.
