These early records are card indexes from Manitoba (Red River Settlement), Canada, from the years 1832-1856, taken by the Hudson's Bay Company, and the 1870 provincial census of Manitoba. Sourced from the Provincial Archives of Manitoba. Find name, age, residence place, ethnicity and birth place and sometimes more.

Manitoba, Canada, Baptisms, Marriages, and Burials, 1834-1959 90,290 records
These BMB records sourced from the Provincial Archives of Manitoba are from various churches in and around Manitoba, and some from present day Saskatchewan and even Minnesota. Some records are also from fur trading posts and Oblate missionaries to the First Nations some dating back to 1800.

Saskatchewan, Canada, Cemetery Transcripts, 1850-1994  164,751 records
Ten volumes of registers of the Saskatchewan Genealogical Society are the source for these card images. As in this random example the information may be bare bones, but note the number in the corner which can help determine in which cemetery and municipality an individual was buried. The link to this chart shows in this case it's the Municipality of Redburn's Briercreast Municipal Cemetery.

Ancestry gives the source of these typical Catholic format records with images of the originals linked as Saskatchewan, Catholic Church Records, 1846-1957.
