The Database allows users to access Métis related archival information, previously only available at Library and Archives Canada (Ottawa) or on microfilm. It is intended for genealogists and Métis to construct Métis family trees using the documents in the database. Providing Métis users with access to their ancestors’ documents facilitates the process of cultural re-connection, identity reclamation, and nation building.
The UBCIC Library is a specialized research library and archives focusing on BC land rights research. We serve all researchers who have a Band Council Resolution (BCR) to conduct research on behalf of a First Nation.
