Our museum and archives exist in order to record and preserve the history of the Cut Knife area. Our collections are catalogued using content management software made specifically for museums. In addition to our current online exhibits, this software will allow us to provide digital access to select portions of our collections.
In general, vital statistics are used to identify an individual’s ancestors, and stories are used to place people within the context of their times.
Local museums and archives, and locally written and compiled histories often contain a wealth of information that will help family historians flesh out the stories of their ancestors.
When completed, the SHNO project will have digitized, described, and made available over 100 years of newspapers published from over 100 separate communities across the province.
