General Description and Notes:
This paper describes itself as a “Metis Newsletter.” According the Glenbow Museum, the editor, R. Geoffrey Burtonshaw, 1916- , was born on a farm near Valpoy, Manitoba. He moved to Calgary, Alberta in 1952 and worked as a carpenter until he retired in 1981. He subsequently became interested in Metis genealogy and collected a vast amount of information on the subject.
In the spring of 1991, he started Neya Powagans: The Metis Newsletter, a bi-monthly publication. He also assembles a Metis Researcher contact list and hosts Metis Research Nights at his house. At present he answers up to 700 written enquiries a year on Metis genealogy. He also volunteers on a regular basis at the Glenbow Museum, assisting Metis genealogy researchers.
