Hudson Bay Company Archives Biographical Sheets

The Hudson Bay Company Archives (HBCA) have placed online one-page biographical sheets on people who were employed by the Hudson Bay Company and/or the North West Company. Brits, especially Scots, are heavily represented.

Biographical sheets outline the person's employment history and may also include the parish of origin or place of birth; positions, posts and districts in which the person served; family information, if available; and references to related documents, including photographs or drawings. The project is not complete, but ongoing.
