Summaries of interviews
Description: 
Interviews conducted in 1979 under a contract of the Saskatchewan Archives Board. The St. Andrew's, Benbecula and Moffat districts of the province were originally settled by Scottish pioneers. The underlying objective of this project was to study the development of the community and the changes that occurred over the past half-century. Those interviewed discuss their backgrounds, adaptability to life in Canada, while at the same time revealing the degree of retention of certain aspects of traditional Scottish culture. Religion, folklore, music, Gaelic language and literature are some of the areas of attention.
