Diligently recorded by hand 147 years ago, the earliest Meeting Minutes for Winnipeg City Council have been carefully, and manually, transcribed for everyone to view.
The entire first Minute Book is now available online and includes all Council Meeting Minutes from January 19, 1874 through December 25, 1875.
“The original Minute Book is in the City of Winnipeg Archives, but too fragile to handle so making these records available online will help preserve the original materials by reducing handling,” said Sarah Ramsden, Senior Archivist at the City of Winnipeg.
