Travel with Gordon Goldsborough from Rapid City School to Mallard Lodge to Union Stockyards and many places in between. This book looks at abandoned historical sites around Manitoba, describing their features, what caused them to be abandoned, and what they tell us about the history of the province. Gordon also publishes “Historic Sites of Manitoba” on the Manitoba Historical Society (MHS) website, which presents descriptions and GPS locations for over 950 Manitoba cemeteries. E.g. http://www.mhs.mb.ca/docs/sites/birtlecemetery.shtml Each entry has a link to the MGS cemetery transcripts page http://mbgenealogy.com/resources/mgs-publications-research-aids/cemetery-transcriptions/
