British Columbia



Heritage Day, Terrace BC, 2019
Saturday, February 23rd, 2019, 1pm - 4pm
Opening Ceremonies at 1:30pm
Terrace Arena Banquet Room
This year’s theme - “Heritage: The Tie That Binds Us”
Presented by Terrace Regional Historical Society

Free Genealogy Lookup Offer,
For Those that Attend the Event

I plan on attending again this year, please stop and say Hi
This year I will be taking submissions of Names, and any known Information on those Names,
And I will do free lookups for as much info I can find for those names.
No Promises on what pops up, if anything.
One name per person please, and I will tell you up front if I think I have a chance on locating any info.
I specialize in England, Canada and US, but some other countries can be looked at,
But language barrier for me, makes that less of a chance to find the person.
Note- I do not research names from last 50-60 years usually, as due to privacy reasons there isn't much available.
But old newspapers might reveal something on them?
I will research the names at home, after the event, and send what I find, if anything.
So bring your name to search, and email address
That I will then Digitally send the Information I find to.

This might include census pictures, etc, so an email address that will handle the larger files would be great.
Never know what I might find!
And there will be $0 cost to you no matter what.
You will get a good couple hours research from me in any event.
See you there!

Below you will find links to various topics on the history of British Columbia

Note on Native History

Note on Native History

Note- These web pages cover only the European/Asian History of this area, of the last hundred years or so. I will leave the First Nations to record and publish their own history, as I have limited information available to me. The term “Indian” is used where it is the historically accurate term, in regards to job titles etc., and is not meant in any derogatory way. If the term is being quoted from a book, census, etc, then it will be written in my pages that way. I don't personally agree with the way the European came and took over this land, but I am not going to judge them here, after the fact. Just as it is important to have a record of Native history in the area, I also feel these men and women need their history saved. This is the purpose of this web page.




Note- NOT my web sites, Links may or may not work in the future, I do NOT control their content
Web Sites I can personally recommend for BC History Viewing
