Welcome to the Manitoba Project! This is a sub-project of Project:Canadian History.
The main purpose of this sub-project is to create and manage WikiTree profiles for historically-significant Manitobans, including politicians, authors, singers, etc. Everyone from Louis Riel to Gabrielle Roy. Our secondary purpose is to assist others with Manitoba research whenever possible, using our local knowledge and experience.
