Scope and content

Sub-series consists of 18 parish registers used by the Lieutenant-Governor of Manitoba in the lottery system devised by the Department to award land grants in a random fashion to Métis children as required by section 31 of the Manitoba Act (33 Vic., c. 3). The registers are organized by claim number. Each entry records the allotment number, claimant's name, parents' names, claimant's occupation, date of eighteenth birthday (for minors), grant number, date of the allotment, and the legal description to which the allotment was applied. Each parish return is signed by a representative of the Lieutenant-Governor.
