Métis National Council Historical Online Database

Anyone with deep roots in western Canada should be excited about the new MNC Historical Online Database. It brings together data from the 1881, 1891, and 1901 censuses, the Manitoba Act Affidavits, and the Northwest "Half-breed" Scrip Applications, and provides links to the original documents. There's even an option for registered users to build a family tree online. This looks like a model other First Nations will want to emulate.
