Homestead Records are Available from the Provincial Archive in Sask.

People settled on the land granted to them. Don't know if there was a choice - re which side of a river etc.

Cemetery Transcripts: Not all cemeteries have been transcirbed - Some persons only transcribe their family and connected family intersts. Other Headstones are old, very difficult to transcribe. Because of costs, situations etc, not everyone had a headstone, some wooden crosses etc - that have deteriorated.
Cemetery Office - may have information re burials.
Town may have records - or burials . Records may have been transfered to the Provincial Archive.

Have you read - the history- Re Austro-Hungarian Empire -re Ukrainians/ Polish etc.
Polish are Roman Catholic.
Ukrainian - Greek Orthodox, Greek Catholic
Ukrainian were somtimes considered Ruthenian.
