Stories of Selkirk’s Pioneers and Their Heritage
Published in commemoration of Selkirk’s 125th anniversary, Stories of Selkirk’s Pioneers and Their Heritage contains the stories of over 100 members of Selkirk’s pioneer families, vignettes of Selkirk’s early years and hundreds of photos.
Born and raised in Selkirk, author Ken Howard began an exploration of his own family’s genealogy, history and heritage following an inquiry from one of his grandsons.
After writing the memoirs of his father, Louis George Howard, Howard found that his research had stirred memories of many friends and neighbours from the 1920s onward.
This book is a true labour of love, recording the stories of generations of Selkirk residents and revealing the true fabric of the city.
