What's New in Cyndi's List for Canadian Genealogy

Once again, Cyndi Ingle of Cyndi's List overwhelms and surprises. 
For a moment, I thought her What's New section would be a good topic for a series:  'Cyndis List Canadian Roundup Weekly Review', but it would really be too much like overkill. Check out July 12ths submission, for example, no less than 16 updated or new links for Saskatchewan alone!
Well worth checking in with CyndisList on a regular basis to see what is new and upcoming in the world of Canadian genealogy! (P.S. -If the links don't work, you can 'Report a Broken Link' or copy and paste the title into your browser and this will usually come up trumps.) Click on each province to discover what is available in this amazing List!
Please note: separate links have been removed in the separate titles in consideration of the Terms and Conditions.

Links to Lutheran churches on B.C. , ALBERTAMANITOBA , SASKATCHEWAN and ONTARIO pages. There are updates to listings of the Anglican church of Canada and the Canadian Council of Churches in Toronto. As well, the United Church Archives are updated on the Saskatchewan pages. Highlights :
Saskatchewan Conference United Church of Canada - Archives in Regina, Saskatchewan. The collection includes records from Methodist, Presbyterian, Congregational and local union churches in Saskatchewan prior to 1925, as well as local, presbyterial and Conference records of the United Church of Canada, from 1925 onwards.
Many links to Ukrainian and Doukhobor resources on the SASKATCHEWAN pages.
Wonderful to see links to rural Museums, for example: Swift Current Museum, Ukrainian Museum,  Watrous-Manitou Beach Heritage Centre in Watrous and the Wolseley Heritage Foundation all in Saskatchewan. As well, a reference to the Société Historique de la Saskatchewan. Western Development Museum (WDM) with centers in Moose Jaw, North Battleford, Saskatoon and Yorkton, Saskatchewan.
Two references to Facebook groups: Southwest Saskatchewan Oldtimers' Museum & Archive and the Whitewood Historical Museum & Heritage Center. 
Also in Saskatchewan, many references to University special collections.
