This site is an assortment of Free Access History Pages
for SE Saskatchewan, North-West BC, and various other places in Canada.

All My Pages are Ad Free, Pop-up Free, Cookie Free, and Access Free!

All I ask in return is to NOT copy any of the pictures for another online site,
This is not a Public Photo Sharing site.

I don't think that is too much to ask, but still are a few that ignore the warnings.

Photo Donators remain the owners, and or copyright holder if applicable, of the Photos sent to me. They are on this site to add to the text, and story, You may link to the Page they are located on only! Please understand- Asking permission to use the photos, requires many hours of my time locating the original donator, and in some cases can't be done, due to email changes. Please do not ask!

Please note- I add the genealogy information on some pages, for researchers trying to find that one little clue for their family tree. I try not to add any info that would enter into privacy issues, if I have by mistake, please contact me ASAP.

Once you enter the site, you will see an Index on the Left side, you can use that Index to advance to whatever page you wish to view.

My Personal Covid 19 Response-
Wear a mask in Public, and stay a minimum 6 ft apart, and save a life, maybe your own, or mine!
What is so damn hard to understand about that?
Covid is NOT a political thing, it is a Public Health thing!
Listen to the REAL Health Professionals, Talk to your own Doctor,
NOT the Politicians, or the Idiots on Facebook, Twitter, TV, or anyone on the Internet!

You have a small vocal minority that are not telling the whole truth or have listened to some dumb politician, or know it all, that know nothing \
It is in every country in the world. Not just Canada and the US
I have 2 news sources I trust 100% of the time. CBC and BBC
They are not controlled by one rich man and his family for one, and they have no motive to lie.

You want the truth, go to those sources. They might not be the glitzy flashy news stations, but they tell the truth.
If your own doctor tells you you have cancer, you would believe him, Why not believe in this?
Even if wearing a mask only works 10% of the time, that is better than doing nothing!
I am claustrophobic, and still wear a mask in public places. It is not on all the time. Only in public places. No Big Damn Deal!
When the vacine is passed out to my age group, I will be first in line.
This virus is serious, it is NOT a joke, it is NOT a hoax.

Do you think your ancestors would think the Spanish Flu in 1918 was a Joke or Hoax Today?
Learn from their mistakes, don't follow them.
People are dying from this virus, young and old!
Yes more old people are dying, but now younger ones are as well.
It is not getting better, it is getting worse.
Symptoms can last for months, even if you are lucky to live.
It is now affecting the brain, Brain Fog they call it, you will loose your sense of smell and taste for months if you are lucky to live.
Healthy people have died from it, not just old, sick and over weight folks!

Stay home if possible, and keep me safe if no one else.


This is a Family Owned and Operated Web Site, I have NO connection with any Major or Minor Genealogy Sites, or any Paid Sponsor.

You will see some External Links to other sites, at the bottom of some pages, for reference purposes only, I do NOT get paid by any of those links.

The Old html Site is now fully linked to this new site. http://www.gent-family.com The old html site pages are NOT updated, so I recommend NOT using them.
The only reason we have carried them forward is I might have missed some info in the transfer / transition period.


The Security Certificate for this site acts up now and then I recommend you add my site to your “safe” sites list in your firewall and choice of browser. This solves any problem down the road. You can also just ignore the Security warning if you really want to view it.

It amazes me how the search engines, browsers, and spam software, control my spam free, ad free, and price free history sites on the internet, but allow porn, spam, and other crap to continue? Explain that Mr Google?
My site is as safe as it can be, I guarantee it is Ad Free, Spam Free, and Trojan Free, at least by me!

Note- These web pages cover only the European, Asian and American History of this area, over the last hundred years or so. I will leave the First Nations to record and publish their own history, as I have limited information available to me, and I am not First Nation Ancestry, so have no right to do that. The term “Indian” is used in my site, where it is the historically accurate term, in regards to job titles etc., and is not meant in any derogatory way. If the term is being quoted from a book, census form, etc, then it will be written in my pages that way. I don't personally agree with the way the Europeans came and took over this land, but unlike what some think, you can not erase history. You learn from history so the mistakes are not made again. Just as it is extremely important to have a record of First Nation history in Canada, I also feel these other men and women need their history saved. This is the purpose of my web page.


This new layout will offer many new features, it will be easier to navigate and easier for us to update.
Some examples of the new features:

  • The site is fully “Responsive” which means it should work well on phones, tablets or desktops
  • In the top toolbar you can click this icon: to increase the the width of the content (ie. remove the whitespace on either side of this page.
  • A lot of information will be converted into searchable/sort-able tables. See Coal Mine Index as an example
  • Note top right you will see a seach box. I think it is the best feature of the new format. It works fast, and is very accurate. Give that a try for sure!
  • New Search Bar, Top of Each Page in this Site
  • You can now share any page on this site, on Facebook, Twitter, etc. from this icon, near top right of each page
  • You can use the indexes to the right or above as a starting point or click here for a complete  Index
