Canada 150 - Manitoba Papers Name Ancestors

During our country's 150th anniversary celebration of confederation I will write posts titled Canada 150 with a link to a publication or website I find that may help you tell the story of your Canadian ancestors.
Click on the Canada 150 label on the right or at the bottom to see all the posts.

Today I have for you...

Manitoba Sessional Papers of 1915
Deaf Students, Brand Registers and Stallion Owners

Looking at the list of papers for the 1915 Sessional Papers, we see that a lot of reports were not printed.. like No.67, names of teachers of the Polish and Ruthenian schools. Or No.73, the name, address and age of 29 students that were truant in 1913-1914. But there were printed three interesting reports that give names of Manitoba ancestors. 

One was No. 10, Report of the Department of Public Works which, oddly enough, not only gave statistics on public buildings such as the Insane Asylum (take a look at the discharge  stats) and the schools, but also included a list of students that attended the school of the deaf. Listed are name, residence, date admitted and cause of deafness.

Next we scroll to No.13 for the Department of Agriculture, which gives a list of Cattle Brands and who they are registered to. 

Going a little further we see a Registration of Stallion with their owners' name and residence.  This one you may want to use the Search bar at top right, as the list is sorted by name of Stallion, not owner.

You never know when you are going to find you ancestors in the Sessional Papers.
