Gazetteer and Business Directory, Canada 1930 Gazetteer and Business Directory, Canada 1930
Product No. CA0035

A wonderful book with a truly misleading original title. Of the almost 2000 pages in this book the gazetteer takes up 70 while the rest are devoted to a wonderfully complete directory of Canadian businesses and professional people and their advertising. This is a great resource in a Country where early directories are so scarce.

Both the gazetteer and the Business Directory are indexed by Province but the Business Directory is also sub-indexed by trade or profession. So, if you are looking for someone who was a Grocer in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan you can go straight to the alphabetized list of 71 candidates, most of who were trading under their own name rather than under a company name. In fact the vast majority of the businesses listed were named for the owner including, of course, the professional listings for Physicians, Veterinarians, Barristers, Insurance Agents, etc.

Another one for the must have list.

History of Saskatchewan and its People - Complete in 3 Volumes History of Saskatchewan and its People - Complete in 3 Volumes
Product No. CA0222-C

Written by John Hawkes and first published in 1924, this work of over 2000 pages was originally bound as three volumes, but organized into two subject areas. The whole of vol. 1 and a good part of vol. 2 contains the “story” of Saskatchewan while the remainder of vol. 2 and the whole of vol. 3 is packed with the biographies of about 660 prominent Saskatchewans, and more than 50 photographic portraits. The “story” section is also illustrated with over 235 photographs of subjects such as early dwellings and settlements, people, natural history, and many fascinating early photographs of native people and their ceremonies.

This work is a rich treasure trove for genealogists and historians. Of special interest to anyone seeking the experience of early Saskatchewan are the recounted tales of the original settlers and pioneers which John has used as a part of the rich "story" section.

For those whose interests are restricted to only the stories or the biographies section we have released individual CDs carrying only those sections see CA0222-H and CA0222-B, at a more economical price.

As usual, we have placed a "sampler" on our downloads page so you can see a little of what is in these fabulous volumes, including the tables of contents for the "history" section and the lists of names of the biography subjects. The whole of the book has been formatted for searches using Adobe Reader™ or similar application, and enhanced with our FastFind technology so that search results can be presented almost instantaneously.
