This is an on-line book that provides exhaustive information about how to research M¨¦tis genealogy. It covers virtually every imaginable topic related to M¨¦tis genealogy and provides information on where to find records and how to access other genealogical resources.
Unfortunately the amount of historic research done on the M¨¦tis in Ontario has not as of yet been that extensive. This section, however, provides access to some of the research that has taken place. This research may be of use to some individuals with genealogical ties to Ontario.
In 2017, after years of painstaking research, the MNO made a huge stride towards making it much easier for individuals to identify their Ontario M¨¦tis ancestor by releasing nearly 100 Ontario M¨¦tis Root Ancestor Reports. Each report focuses on a particular M¨¦tis family in a historic M¨¦tis community and provides the family's connection to a root M¨¦tis ancestor.
