New: Property Assement Books for Weyburn, Saskatchewan
The Prairie History Room recently purchased 3 volumes of Weyburn: From the Roots Up: Assessed Owners & Properties, 1904-1920 that was compiled and published by the Weyburn Genealogical Society. Each volume contains an index of names for assessed landowners, some who purchased their properties on speculation but never actually lived in Weyburn.
So why would researchers want to use this index? Well for one thing, there was no city directory published for Weyburn so if you are trying to track down who may have been living in the community from the years 1904-1920 or what businesses were in operation, these volumes should help to answer your questions.
