The Genealogy Department of the Cloverdale Library, Surrey BC has a Britsh Columbia Research Guide online. (Published April 2011)

Internet: http://www.surreylibraries.ca/programs-services/4822.aspx

A recent published guide to Canadian genealogy research includes a chapter on British Columbia.

  • Sherry Irvine and Dave Obee, Finding Your Canadian Ancestors, A Beginner's Guide. Provo, Utah: Ancestry Publications, 2007.

An index to many published biographies, census records (1881–1891), directories to 1913, genealogies, local histories, and vital records in newspapers for British Columbia is:

  • Elliot, Noel Montgomery, ed. The Western Canadians, 1600–1900: An Alphabetized Directory of the People, Places, and Vital Dates. 3 vols. Toronto: Genealogical Research Library, 1994. (Family History Library book 971 D22w.) Indexes about 300,000 names from various sources for the provinces of Alberta, British Columbia, Northwest Territories, Saskatchewan, and Yukon (also includes Alaska). Sources are listed at the end of each volume.

Writing and Sharing Your Family History

Sharing your own family history is valuable for several reasons:

  • It helps you see gaps in your own research and raises opportunities to find new information.
  • It helps other researchers progress in researching ancestors you share in common.
  • It draws other researchers to you who already have information about your family that you do not yet possess.
  • It draws together researchers with common interests, sparking collaboration opportunities. For instance, researchers in various localities might choose to do lookups for each other in remote repositories. Your readers may also share photos of your ancestors that you have never seen before.
