Provincial Archives of Manitoba, Manitoba, Canada.
Archidocese of Keewatin-La Pas, Manitoba, Canada.
This collection consists baptism, marriage, and burial records from various churches in and around Manitoba, Canada between the years of 1834 and 1959. Some information found by browsing the collection may date back to 1800, but baptism, marriage, and burial records are only found post-1834.
Some of the records in this collection pre-date Manitoba's creation as a province, and, as a result, are from locations that do not exist in present-day Manitoba, but instead are found in Saskatchewan, Winnepeg, or Minnesota. Most locations were fur trading posts, the earliest records are those created by Oblate missionaries to the First Nations and Metis populations in those remote areas which, at the time, belonged to the Hudson's Bay Company until 1869.
English, French, and Icelandic languages may all be found in the records Most Lutheran records from Bifrost, Gimli, and Winnepeg are written in English. The Catholic records from Brochet, St. Eustache and St. Francois Xavier (the oldest Roman Catholic chuch in Winnepeg) are predominantly written in French. Some Unitarian records from Winnepeg are written in Icelandic.
