FINALLY,  I have completed and posted the transcription of the Woodnorth Consolidated School Board Minutes for meetings held from the opening of the Consolidated School in 1918 to the end of 1951 – almost 42,000 words! More proof-reading is probably required but I am going to take a break for the time being. I have posted the scans of the original pages as well as my transcription so anyone who wants to read the original hand-written records may always do so.

To read any of the Minutes simply go to the “About” page of this website and click on the years of Minutes that you may wish to read.

I still have to re-scan and post a number of pages of Revenue and Expenditure records that accompany the School Board Minutes for this period but that is not as time consuming as transcribing. I hope to have that completed by the end of the month so I can go back to writing and posting more of my own genealogical research.

Since I have posted so much information relating to the town of Woodnorth, Manitoba, I decided to register my site with the Society of One-Place Studies. The organization, based in the U.K., was founded by genealogists in 2013. It has information on places around the world, contributed by individuals researching those places and family in those locations. There are two other places listed in Manitoba, some in five other Canadian provinces, but none yet in Alberta. The link to that site is:  https://www.one-place-studies.org

  1. Amazing…what a job! 5 GOLD STARS! Congratulations for sticking through to the end. Idea of the one place study is good….you have so much info on the place plus all the pictures.


    1. Hi Louise, Thank you for the gold stars! It does seem like it was a huge job and I am glad to have finished. If it was not for the Covid-19 lockdown it would probably have stretched into next year. Pam
