Notes
"Eddie Dillon had never seen this family photo [included with article]. It was June 2011, and Dillon was at the Truth and Reconciliation Commission's (TRC) Inuvik national event when he spotted the snapshot of all seven Dillon brothers. They were standing, circa 1965, on the steps of Stringer Hall, and Anglican-run hostel in Inuvik". The photo was one of many taken by "a Stringer Hall nurse, Mossie Moorby, [who] had documented her life with the students in the 1960s and '70s. After Moorby died, her daughter gave some of these school photos to the General Synod Archives in Toronto. In spring 2011, after decades in boxes and albums, the photos journeyed back to Inuvik with Nancy Hurn, General Synod archivist. Hurn brought a display of school photos to this gathering, as she does for all national TRC events. It's part of the archives' work to make all records available to former residential school students". "The Dillon children grew up at Stringer Hall. Each September they flew four hours from their home in Tuktoyuktuk, N.W.T., to Inuvik, where they studied at Sir Alexander Mackenzie Day School and stayed at the hostel until June. Dillon told the TRC commissioners that his schooling was "a tool my mom and dad wanted me to have .. a tool I'm going to use for the rest of my life to get me further in where I want to go. Dillon now lives in Tuktoyuktuk and works as chair of the Northwest Territories Water Board. He said his 12 years at Stringer Hall gave him lifelong friends -- many now leaders in local organizations".

Notes
"On November 4 [2015], a key tool in [the work of reconciliation] will become available when the National Research Centre for Truth and Reconciliation (NRCTR) opens it doors. Operating out of the University of Manitoba, in Winnipeg, the research centre holds the millions of records uncovered by the [Truth and Reconciliation] commission that detail the role government and churches played in the 150-year history of the residential school system, as well as the thousands of survivor testimonies shared with the TRC. One of the NRCTR's most powerful resources is a searchable database that will allow survivors, families and researchers access to records relating to individuals and schools. 'Opening of the database marks the first step in the journey to really start to provide meaningful access to the records that so many have worked so hard to collect over the past six years', said NRCTR director Ry Moran". "Although all relevant Anglican records have been handed over, Nancy Hurn, General Synod archivist, said the NRCTR and the Anglican archives continue to work closely".
