Online Records
links to online databases and indexes that may include vital records, biographies, cemeteries, censuses, histories, immigration records, land records, maps, military records, naturalizations, newspapers, obituaries, or probate records.

Computer Networks and Bulletin Boards

Computers with modems can be useful tools for obtaining information from selected archives and libraries. In a way, computer networks themselves serve as a library. The Internet, certain computer bulletin boards, and commercial on-line services help family history researchers:

  • Locate other researchers.
  • Post queries.
  • Send and receive E-mail.
  • Search large databases.
  • Search computer libraries.
  • Join in computer chat and lecture sessions.

You can find computerized research tips and information about ancestors from Manitoba in a variety of sources at local, state, national, and international levels. The list of sources is growing rapidly. Most of the information is available at no cost.

Addresses on the Internet change frequently. As of April 2007, the following sites are important gateways linking you to many more network and bulletin board sites:

Canada Genealogy Links.net

http://www.genealogylinks.net/canada/index.html

A cooperative effort by many volunteers to list genealogical databases, libraries, bulletin boards, and other resources available on the Internet for each county and province.

Canadian Genealogy Resources

http://genealogy.about.com/hobbies/genealogy/msubcanada.htm  

Lists county, provincial, and national sources; personal pages; and publications.

Roots-L

http://www.rootsweb.com/roots-l/canada.html

A useful list of sites and resources. Includes a large, regularly updated research coordination list.

FamilySearch™

www.familysearch.org

The Family History Library and some Family History Centers have computers with FamilySearch™. FamilySearch is a collection of computer files containing several million names.
