Scope and content
Series consists of general pre-Confederation Indian Department office records. The pre-Confederation records of the Imperial and Colonial Governments were created prior to the establishment of a formal file system. Wherever possible the records were kept and arranged in chronological order as they were received by the various offices. Nonetheless, in some of the pre-Confederation material transferred from the department no pre-archival arrangement was discernable and, therefore, in arranging the records arbitrary decisions had to be made. In the case of this series it has been considered desirable to revert to an arrangement under subject headings because of the diversified nature and small volume of the records.
