Hi, I recently came into possession of an old book of personal stories of the pioneers of the Weyburn area from the nineteen hundreds. The areas included are,Halbrite, Griffin, Regina, Huntoon, and Innes.
There are many names in it, but if you would like me to look up a name for you, I would be happy to do so.
Best, Denice

Was hoping you could look up some names in the book as follows: Not sure you will find them since they worked about 1910-1911 in the McTaggart and Yellow Grass areas near Regina.

Dankert, John (Jan) and Martha (Maartje)
de Vries, Sidney (Sijste)
Bierma (surname), don't know first name
Frarers Jim
Wilson, Ben and Daisy (Taylor)

Thank you so much

I was wondering if the last name of Waddell might be in the book. My husband's grandmother was from Weyburn and her family owned a large farm in the area. Please let me know if you have anything on this family name.
Thank you,
Sharon

This is a link to a site with oodles of history books. When you open it do a search using Waddel Weyburn and 11 books will show up. I then did a Waddell search in each book after opening to get more hits. Without Weyburn as a keyword 347 books showed up and you can refine your search using other keywords. http://www.ourroots.ca/e/ Happy hunting Butch
