This website could not have been launched without the hard work and enthusiasm of a large supporting cast. The impetus for developing the website came from the Historic Resources Branch who identified the paucity of heritage content on municipal websites and developed an infrastructure for doing something about it.
This website is being developed as a pilot project, funded by a Heritage grant and designed to test a template that was developed in conjunction with the Gimli Municipal Heritage Advisory Committee. Our thanks to Historic Resources Branch personnel, who made us aware of the possibilities and fired our interest in the project.
Photographs from the Archives of Manitoba are identified where they appear on the website. Unless otherwise indicated, all other photographs are from the Birdtail Country Museum files.
Members of the community have contributed in many ways to the launch of this new website, providing information, loaning old family photos, or helping locate former heritage sites.
