Research From a Distance

For those unable to visit the Archives in Winnipeg, there are several options for conducting research from a distance:

  • Search the Keystone database and other online resources.
  • Borrow microfilm through inter-institutional loan, for records which have been microfilmed.  See our Microfilm Program for details.
  • Send your research questions by email or regular mail.  Archives staff will provide information on our programs and services, and will do a very limited amount of research for clients, primarily to advise on relevant records held by the Archives.
  • Consider hiring a professional researcher.
  • Obtain copies. The Archives can provide a limited number of copies of archival records.  Read more about our Copy Services.
