Scope and content
Series consists of office copies of land patents issued for former Indian reserve lands by Indian Affairs Headquarters. In October 1886, responsibility for issuing patents to former Indian lands was transferred from the Registrar's Branch, Secretary of State, to the Department of Indian Affairs. In 1951, this responsibility was transferred back from the Department of Indian Affairs to the Registrar General's office. This explains why patents in this series date only for the period 1886-1951. Volume 14108 is an original land patent. A copy is also available in volume 10988.
Conditions of access
Copyright belongs to the Crown. These original records are in fragile condition. Microform copies are available at the Indian Lands Registry, Department of Indian Affairs and Northern Development, and users are asked to consult the microform copy there.
Finding aid 10-46 is a handwritten list which indicates the patent number of the first patent contained in each volume. The finding aid does not provide any other access points to the records (e.g., by name of patentee, date, legal description of the land), and so it is necessary to know the patent number in order to identify the correct volume. Users should note that the microform copies of these records, held at the Department of Indian Affairs and Northern Development, are indexed and so the microform records held there can be identified according to a number of search variables. 10-46 (Paper)
