Scope and content

Sub-series consists of Red Series files dealing with almost all aspects of the administration of Indian Affairs in eastern Canada, 1872-1964. The bulk of the records however concern the period 1872-1923. Issues with a national dimension will also usually be found documented on Red Series files and so one cannot necessarily assume that there are no records relating to western Canada within the Red Series.
The maps, which range from hand-drawn sketches to blueprints are published sheets, document surveys, surrenders, boundary changes and disputes over Indian lands. Also given is information on land occupancy and ownership, and the situation of buildings, gardens, cemeteries, etc. Architectural drawings relate to schools, hospitals, agent houses, churches, Council houses, saw mills and other buildings. Engineering plans depict such projects as bridges, culverts, docks, walls, and other constructions. The majority of the items relate to Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick; a small number relate to British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Northwest Territories and Prince Edward Island.

Finding aid 10-10 is a computer generated file list. 10-10 (Electronic)

Finding aid 10-11 is a typed subject index created by the Department of Indian Affairs while the Red Series was still in departmental custody. As such, it reflects the subject indexing schema of the creators and users of the records whereas finding aid 10-10 is a creation of the National Archives. 10-11 (Paper)

A hardcopy print-out of the information contained in computer-generated finding aid 10-10, which presents the information in subject-indexed format (based on KWOC - key word out of context - indexing principles), prepared by the National Archives in the early 1980s, is available on microfilm reels C-15713 to C-15716. However, this index was filmed prior to the opening of restricted material and so does not reflect the current access status of all records. This microfilm finding aid has been superseded by more recent tools and is mentioned here only because copies were acquired by many researchers and institutions and may still be in use outside the National Archives.
