Hi,
From the Alberta GenWeb Local History Book site
http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~canab/lhb/lhbindex.html
Perhaps family connected?
AKITT, ; From Hoofprints to Highways; Clearwater

You want to own copies of the following books?

New and Used - can prove to be quite expensive.

Some of the family stories/histories - may just be a paragraph - some families submitted more. Also - though a name/s may appear in an index - there may only be a reference to the person.

If you haven't viewed the information contained in the books - you might want to check the following first.

Otherwise: Contacting the Municipal office -for the area - Genealogical Society/ Museum/Archive for the area -They may have some books available.
There may be second hand dealers eg Abe books etc - who may have the books for sale

There is a Volunteer Shirley who owns or has access to the book Buffalo Trails and Tales -
http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~canab/lookwain.html
The Following Book has been Digitized - and Can Be Viewed Online. at OUR ROOTS:

Hello Peter,thanks for replying.I am interested in people who were friends, neighbours of my gt uncle,Wilson Akitt, and are mentioned in Across the Years.Joshua Jenkinson, was his uncle, from Cockermouth, Cumberland.Joshua's wife Augusta and daughter, Alberta, I know very little of. The Strachan family from Scotland all sailed over together and Norman was executor for Wilson's will.(1911 census)The Sewell family were in- laws, (1916census) One more family!!, the Sayers wrote very kindly about Wilson as their neighbour. That is more than enough,but to me it is so lovely to know that he had many good friends when his own family were far away. I often wonder if his son John Wilson Akitt ever visited? thankyou again, regards, carolyn.

Hello,
The local area history book "Across the Years" is found online at
http://www.ourroots.ca/searchResults.aspx?qryID=5e6bdc2a-728...

To find a copy for sale, I have had great luck with
http://www.bookfinder.com
There are copies available, be sure to not only put the title in when searching but also place Chauvin in as the Author so that it narrows the search terms.
Good luck!
