Sorry, this page is no longer available on Internet

HERITAGE CONSULTING has a Fur Trade/Aboriginal/Western Canadian electronic databank of some 1,000,000 pages that could be put on Internet to help your research aims. (see for example the listing of photos) over 100,000 genealogies and family histories (see listing), 40,000 tribal and band histories (see listing), 60,000 locational histories (see listing)and other information (see photos), as well as a 5,000 piece Cree artifacts collection. If you would like to see such a reference source on internet, contact the Government of Alberta to finance to cost of placing it on line and maintaining it at the following addresses: The Premier of Alberta Deputy Premier Minister, Community Development Minster, Aboriginal Affairs Pearl Calahison Leader of the Opposition M.L.A. Alberta MuseumsDirector Aside from the costs, one of the reasons we have cut back on our site is given below:

This site has contained original research and copyrighted material. The Government of the Province of Alberta (Canada) in 2006 gave $7,000,000.00 to a competing Archives Network to gather this data and tap into our databank to duplicate our databank of their own use and disposition, including the charging of fees. The Government of Canada has given the Roots Project of McGill University and the University of Alberta $1,000,000.00 for a similar purpose. It was the intent of this network to cut and paste our data to their site. Consequently, we have removed this site from the Public Domain. Oiginal information research by our organization will no longer be available on Internet. The Public Domain data from this site should again be available from a Government website in about 5 years (bets?). This matter appeared before the Alberta Government Ethics Commission, and was found to have enough merit to be forwarded on to the Provincial Ombundsman, who's office found enough cause to order an investigation into possible inappropirate action by the Government of Alberta. The government generated a vast pile of paper to justify itself. The Ethics Commissioner ruled that: had it been done by a bureaucrat, it would have been unwarranted and illegal interference by government in private industry BUT, this was done at the direction of the Minister and The Minister is not bound by such conflict legislation. Since the Minister is can do as he pleases, this government action was not inappropriate. As it happens, this agency so far has not been able to duplicate our data and place it on line. Since we have been researching this data and analysing it for 40 years it is unlikely they will catch up for years to come yet. If you would like to see this our site back on line, rather than waiting years for the government-backed agent to get up to speed, contact any of the following to voice your request. The Premier of Alberta Deputy Premier Minister, Community Development Minster, Aboriginal Affairs Pearl Calahison Leader of the Opposition M.L.A. Government of Alberta (Progressive Conservative Party) or The Minister, Heritage Canada Since these addresses are filtered through numerous functionaries, the message is not likely to get to the boss. On the other hand, the following FAX numbers go directly to the boss: Premier of Alberta 1-780-427-1349 Alberta Aboriginal Affairs 1-780-427-4019 Minister of Aboriginal Arrairs 1-780-427-1327 Minister of Community Developmt.1-780-427-0188 Minister of Canadian Heritage 1-819-994-5987 The Information formerly available here is now available ONLY through HERITAGE CONSULTING and can be obtained either by mail or on our Heritage Consulting Databank for a slight administration fee. for more details. By the way, that's my deceased wife Irene and Jennifer in front of one of our lodges taken at Enoch Reserve in 1980. Irene was killed by the Government of Canada's intentional mismanagement of tainted blood.
