Notice biographique

Gail Ann Overbey married Bernard Joseph Morin at Ephrata, Washington, USA in 1965, and they settled at Elmer City, Washington. Gail became interested in her husband’s Metis genealogy, and this interest led to a massive undertaking of research and publication. She is the compiler of Manitoba Scrip, North West Half-Breed Scrip 1885, 1900 Scrip, and Metis Families (1996 and 2001 editions).
