      For further enjoyment get a copy of Moose Jaw Museum & Art Gallery’s catalogue of their exhibition EVERETT BAKER; PICTURING A UTOPIAN REALITY with excellent essays by Director Heather Smith and Brett Fairbairn.

      Also Fifth House published EVERETT BAKER’S SASKATCHEWAN; PORTRAITS OF AN ERA selected by Bill Waiser in 2008

      Both feature pictures not yet on the website.

    Bonjour, mes grands-parents sont venus s’installer au Canada Val Marie en 1927 / 28 où ils ont reçu des terres. Je possède de nombreuses photographies de leur installation. Mon père qui avait alors 3 ans devait les rejoindre dès que leur installation serait stabilisée. Malheureusement ma grand-mère est morte 8 mois plus tard et mon grand-père n’a plus jamais donné signe de vie. Est-ce que je peux trouver des renseignement sur ses terres, et le parcours de mon grand-père (GUILLON Emile) dont je viens de découvrir la trace sur le site musée virtuel de la Saskatchewan; En vous remerciant par avance.
    Cordialement Michèle

    What ever happened to the old style historical cairn located on the north side of Wadena. The marker was the old Saskatchewan shape green plaque mounted on a post on stone pad. The marker description was about Assinniboia district of the North West Territory.

      Hi Tyler! Thanks for the comment. Would you happen to know how long this particular marker has been missing?
      Your description of its shape confirms that it is a Sask. Gov’t marker, not one of the Society’s. So I will forward your message along to the Heritage Branch with the hope that they can provide some answers for you. Thanks for spotting the marker’s absence! Unfortunately, some times markers and signs end up as personal trophies. Let’s hope this is not the case for this plaque. Cheers!

    I am wondering if anyone could help me find information on cream prices (received by producers) in the 1950’s, as well as how this compared to, say, average weekly grocery costs? I am doing a bit of fun research on my family’s history.

    Thanks for any information!

    Hi – I’m looking for information about the White Valley Lutheran Church near Shaunavon/Eastend and in particular Louis Johnson who was one of the founding members and my maternal grandfather. Any help you can give would be appreciated. Thank you in advance. Kathie M.
