The Manitoba Scrip. Edited by Gail Morin. An alphabetical listing and complete extraction
of more than 6,700 applications for scrip for $160 or 160 acres given to all residents living
in Manitoba on 15 July 1870. The Manitoba Scrip was issued to all MÃ©tis or Half-breeds
and all original white settlers and their children. Application for the land scrip began
June 1875 and continued until the early 1880's. Information on the application included:
date and place of birth, name, husband's name and race or national origin of parents.
The application was witnessed by two members of the community who knew the person.
Occasionally a certificate of baptism, marriage and death was submitted for proof of
those events. (1996). 369 pages, 8Â½x11", spiral bound.
