My latest post, “Unexpected Archival Finds: Shingwauk Student Register” can be found over at Activehistory.ca.   This piece explores the recent discoveru a “Clerk’s Fee Book” that had been re-purposed as a Shingwauk Residential School student register from 1930-1941.  This find by the Shingwauk Residential Schools Centre staff provides new information about the students who attended Shingwauk during this period and also inspires questions about archival ethics and unexpected records.
