If your relative served with The Royal Winnipeg Rifles, would you like to see a photo of them?

Part of the thrill of tracing your family’s history is putting a face to a name through photos.

What we can do for you

We may have a photo of your relative in our archives.  We do have to caution that most of our photos are not captioned with names.  In 2016 the Museum closed to make way for a major renewal project that includes developing a holdings database with scans of all our photos.  We are currently at the beginning stage of this initiative which means that photo searches are done by hand and take quite a long time.  Once the database is complete, photo searches will be much, much quicker.
