          Ken Storie

          I spent much of my adult life as a school teacher and administrator in several communities in Western Manitoba.
          I now do consulting, research and writing relating to
          Heritage Sites, History and the Outdoors.

          River Journey's In Southwestern Manitoba

          I self-published this little volume in 1996 and designed my first website based upon the research. That website is still current,
          making it one of the longest running websites in Manitoba.

          The Historic Places Initiative

          As a consultant for the Historic Places Initiative I visited over 150 Designated Heritage Sites in Manitoba and produced
          Statements of Significance for www.historicplaces.ca

          Sample Report

          Heritage Projects

          I have produced dozens of Heritage Projects for Municipalities and Heritage Committees.
          These are generally inventories of places, people and events or focused reseach projects.

          All projects are delivered in Binder format, and most are online.

          Special Places

          Special Places Projects were developed by the Historic Resources Branch as a method of creating Community Inventories of Heritage Resources and subjecting the sites to an analysis process that will help communties protect and use their heritage resources  to best advantage. I piloted the first projects in 5 communities in 2008. The projects are in Binders that allow for updates and additions. They are available in Municipal Offices and/or Libraries and Museums in host communities.
          Many of the projects are available on Heritage Websites I created and maintain for those communities. Links are included in this list.

          Notable People

          Notable People Projects build upon the work done in Special Places Projects.

          They begin with a typical inventory of people selected from a carefull examination of available local history volumes. A short biographical entry is made for each person deemed to have had some lasting influence on the developement of the community.

          Pivotal Events

          Pivotal Events Projects as the final component of the three core collections that, along with Special Places and Notable People, will help communties protect and use their heritage resources  to best advantage.  With local history volumes as our guide, and with previous heritage projects and local museums as  a resouce, we create a comprehensive illustrated timeline that puts a community's pivotal events into context and renders them in an entertaining and accessible fashion.

          Educational Materials

          Here our aim is to identify resouces that will assist museums and schools in their efforts to present enhanced local history programming. The result is a binder with a collection of maps, photos, documents along with suggestions for use. The project is a link between the school system, the local museum, and the heritage projects a community has completed.
