You will not switch aspect ratio, you will do 'something' with the archive footage to fit it in the raster of choice.
Now, if you shoot a doc about a historical superwidescreen movie, you will go at least that wide.
Otherwise, it's totally up to you.
Think of a good way to pillarbox, not the 'zoomed blurred mirrored same image left/right' used for vertical video from phones.
Whatever you do, do not pan/scan. It ruins the footage and looses a lot of resolution. Do keep in mind that some old footage must be cropped as it was shot with the intention to crop.

Others will think different I'm sure.
