        Panting, Gerald - A Historical Survey of Southern Manitoba 12 - Frank J Buchanan - Ruttanville 1953 (1880)

        The primary purpose of this research project, undertaken by Gerald Panting in 1953 for the Historical and Scientific Society of Manitoba, was to discover what historical materials were still extant in the South Central district of Manitoba at that time. The secondary purpose was to obtain information about the pioneer days from people who knew about that period from first hand.

        Files have been named based on the community - from Morden to Killarney - in which the pioneer lived in 1953, not according to where they originally settled.
