New Resource – Red River Ancestry.ca

This excellent website is devoted to descendants of early explorers, fur traders and settlers who first inhabited the great Northwest Territory or Rupert’s Land, and more particularly the region of the Red River of the North. Your host, Gary Still, was born in 1939 in Selkirk, MB, and raised in the adjoining community known as Mapleton or Old England.

“My hobby of genealogy began with me tracing my own ancestors, but soon grew to include many of my friends and neighbours. Over the period of almost half a century I gradually amassed a large database of information about the ancestry of virtually everyone I knew”.

The website has an Ancestor Index with a link (red underlined) to Family Pages featuring individual families (or topics) with links to other related families or topics wherever possible.

One thought on “New Resource – Red River Ancestry.ca

  1. I have Red River Ancestry in depth on my father’s side dating back to James Curtis Bird of the HBC whose descendants have intermarried with many of the Red River families.I have done family research so have information of my own that could help expand the website.
    I would like to donate to this website but would need some advice about what Family Page I would possibly choose for development .
