My experience with Residential School in Saskatchewan for 5 years, excluding the Sexual abuse.

I was forced to attend Prince Albert Indian Residential School in 1962-1967 not knowing why I had to be separated from my loved ones. I grew up wondering why. Many years later before I got the Compensation package I had found out it was as I regress was because Charles Davin (a Regina Editor) was commissioned by Sir John A. McDonald to find a low cost effective way to keep the Treaty promises that was needed to build the National Railway from "sea to shining sea". Mr. Davin had to find out about an Indian Program which he had heard about in the United States which was run by a Captain Richard Henry Pratt at Carlyle, Pennsylvania.
I have been to Fort Marion, St. Augustine, Florida with my family when I received Compensation & without any Aboriginal Healing Foundation assistance to heal my memories of "Kill the Indian Save the Man" by Richard Henry Pratt who bought 72 Prisoners of War from the Midwest plains wars especially Geronimo's family but he went to Fort Pickering approximately 62 miles away.

Repatriated items to family collection

I apologize for the hiatus because it has taken sometime for me to locate these items. Additionally, I've had a change of mind regarding Hudson Bay Company because of the information I've learned. It is therefore imperative to me to work with them.

I have found an important piece of history in Montreal!

I've been past this building a few times. I've wondered if it could have some information.

Seems to be another Rodney.

Digging for Roots: Old Photos It's probably time that you met Martha (Dool) Brown since we have been talking so much about her in these Digging For Roots boxes. Martha was born in Canada West in 1842, just a year or two after her Mother and Father came to Oxford-on-Rideau Township from Taylorstown in Northern Ireland. She married Robert Brown on June 10th in 1879, at the late age of 37. She still managed to raise four children before she died in 1917. She must have been very proud of the fact that her husband was one of the stone masons who built the Parliament Buildings in Ottawa.
