Community histories published by communities in the Western provinces
are a great resource for genealogists searching for ancestors who left
Lanark County for greener pastures. Some are available on interlibrary
loan through your local library.

Compiled by K. Dale Scheer, Brentwood Bay, BC.
and submitted by Anna Joan Buxton,
who has this to say about the following book:
(Sonningdale Memories) is a collection of stories 1900-1980, as written by the local
inhabitants. (It is) 433 pages and appears to be done on an old Gestetner,
and bound by hand with tape. There is no ISBN number, and it appears
to have been done under the Sonningdale Recreational Board (20 names
of the collectors are listed), which was probably convened for the
purpose by the Senior Citizen Centre.
A letter to the Postmaster, Sonningdale, would be forwarded to the
Senior Citizens Centre across the street, a good place to locate
descendants who still live there.
The Saskatchewan Provincial Archives may have a copy. Tim Novac would
be the person to contact.
The Saskatchewan Genealogical Society
has a website, and they may also
know if this book is still available. There is a Sonningdale Cemetery
and this may have been transcribed by the society, which would no
doubt give other Ontario names not mentioned in the book.
Within reason, I can do copies for inquirers, of the individual pages
where the excerpts where taken, bearing in mind that the names are
sprinked throughout the book because this is a very small place, and
much may be missed by just copying the pages under the family heading.
Sonningdale was originally named New Ottawa, reflecting
the origins of
many of the first settlers, but the Post Office objected to the name,
and it was changed to Sonningdale.
