Another quilt?


Maeve Underwood, curator, Imperial War Museum, London has been most helpful in arranging for us to see the quilt and to take detailed photographs.

Michael Meyer, Head of International Law, British Red Cross has assisted us with legal guidance to ensure that our use of images containing red crosses does not conflict with the protected status of the red cross symbol.

We are pleased to acknowledge our primary references in researching the family histories:

  1. Henderson City Directories (1908-1965), digitized and available on the Peel website at the University of Alberta. We recommend accessing the directories via the Saskatoon Public Library web-site here
  2. to search for vital statistics, census returns and immigration records
  3. Saskatoon Public Library, Newspaper Archive

In addition we have made extensive use of the other resources listed under References.
