BOOK - Tracing Your Aboriginal Ancestors in the Prairie Provinces, AGuide to the Records and How to Use Them.
by: Saskatchewan Genealogical Society, edited by Laura M. Hanowski

Tracing Your Aboriginal Ancestors in the Prairie Provinces contains detailed explanations about each record group showing when and why they were created, where you will find them today and how and why you would want to access them. In addition to the records found in centres throughout Alberta, Manitoba and Saskatchewan there are chapters or sections devoted to federal records such as census, military, and immigration, as well as the historic records created by the Department of the Interior and the Department ofIndian Affairs.

You will learn what the records are, the time frame they cover, where they are located and what areas of research they cover.

While emphasis is placed on how to use these records in the prairie provinces, the book also explains how to access them from other parts of North America and the world. Internet addresses have been provided, but these can change so it is recommended you use search engines to find those addresses that have changed.

This book is meant to be used as a guide. Space has been left so you can add your own notes.
