Personal Sources Archives

PCUH’s Personal Sources Archives (PSA) was created in 2009 as an archives program for PCUH-affiliated research. The main goal of the PSA is to build a collection and create an inventory of vernacular documentation of importance to the study of the Ukrainian cultural experiences in Saskatchewan, Canada, and around the world.

As a research program, our mandate is to actively seek, collect, and preserve such personal documents as:

  • letters written to/from the “Old Country”
  • diaries
  • family histories
  • personal memoirs
  • photos
  • other relevant documentation

The Personal Sources Archives grew out of two research projects initiated by PCUH in 2007: “Ukrainian Canadian Personal Memoirs” and “Letters from the Old Country,” both supported by Canada’s Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC).
