Names arranged in alphabetical order.

In 1870, the North-West Territories covered the areas that are now Saskatchewan, Alberta, most of Manitoba, northern Ontario, northern Québec, the Yukon Territory and the present-day Northwest Territories.

The North-West Half-Breed Commission took applications from April 10, 1885 to August 28, 1885 at various places in what is now Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba. Both land and money scrip were awarded. "Eligibility requirements for scrip were: the claimant must be a resident of the North-West Territories on July 15, 1870 and must be a Half-breed head of family (married before July 15, 1870) or a Half-breed child."--Author's note.

About this record

This screen shows the complete catalog entry of the title you selected.

The Film/Digital Notes contain a description of the microfilm or microfiche numbers. Some family history centers and libraries maintain collections of previously loaned microfilms or microfiche. A camera icon indicates items that are digitally available online.

Generally, catalog entries are written in the same language as the original record they describe.

Reasons why microfilms may not yet be available digitally on include:

  • The microfilm may be scheduled for future scanning.
  • The microfilm may have been scanned, but have a contractual, data privacy, or other restriction preventing access. FamilySearch makes every effort to enable access dependent on decisions of record custodians and applicable laws.
