Métis First Nation Genealogists
We have genealogists who research specifically in Métis history and genealogy. The term “Métis” is used broadly to describe people with mixed First Nation and European ancestry who identify themselves as Métis, distinct from Indian, Inuit, or non-Aboriginal people. (Many Canadians have mixed Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal ancestry, but not all identify themselves as Métis).
Our genealogists will find and analyze the best records available to further your Métis family history research.
They can search the archives and libraries for Métis records, including:
