Manitobia.ca – now includes Manitoba local history books
Manitobia.ca is one of my favourite Manitoba historical research websites – and it’s all free. It’s been around for quite a while and undergone a few changes.
The very best section to my mind is for Newspapers, but check out the maps and photographs too, and now today, a good number of Manitoba local history books have been added, not including a Newdale one, although many are from the surrounding area.
These seem to be all very large .pdf files, so they will take a while to download to your browser or to save to your computer. There doesn’t appear to be any on-line search facility for them, but once the file has been opened, you can use Edit/Find to locate key words.
The Manitoba Legislative Library has a slideshow of Manitoba local history books on-line. Manitoba Legislative Library Spotlight.
