Archives, libraries and government institutions are now providing databases and digitized images of some of their records that are valuable for those conducting Aboriginal research. The online catalogues and finding aids make it easier to plan research strategies before visiting the institution.  Note can be made of those resources which can be borrowed through interlibrary loan. These institutions may have research guides to help the researcher.

Subscription based providers such as Ancestry.ca offer databases some of which are attached to digitized images. The accuracy of the databases depends on the indexer so caution should be exercised when using them. On the other hand access to the digitized images enables one to examine the whole resource with relative ease.

Personal web pages and blogs are becoming more popular. Many provide extensive family histories. If they are well documented you should be able to check the sources easily. Others provide research advice or offer to do look-ups for fellow researchers.  Therefore, use these sites with caution.

Genealogical websites of value to researchers are:
