Book-on-CD Edition

George Bryce's excellent history of early Manitoba is invaluable for those who are interested in the families and individuals who settled in the region before 1906. In addition to the usual settlement history that one expects from a publication from this time period, the book also provides a quantity of individual and family sketches.

During evaluation of the original book, it struck the publisher that there are a tremendous number of references to the places that early settlers came from. That realization resulted in an extensive new index being done which identifies every instance of a personal name, plus every instance of a place name.

Contents include:
