Scope and content

This index covers most - but not all - files from 1 to 1212a (A - Na) in GR-1372 - correspondence inward to Vancouver Island and British Columbia colonial government officials. The indexing was done on cards, by name of sender, recipient and subject. It was never completed. Files 1212b - 1939 (Na-Z), and some correspondence in files 1-1212a have not been indexed.

Each index card provides the file number, and often a secondary number to indicate the specific item within that file e.g. F123 6 The numbers were written in red crayon on the first page of each document. The index also includes cards for records initially meant to be part of a Hudson's Bay Company correspondence collection and are designated as H.B.Co. files. This collection was abandoned and the records made part of separately catalogued records such as the Donald Ross papers.

The original card catalogue is available in the Reference Room.
