In 1901 the British Columbia government established a Supreme Court registry at the Town of Golden (the “Golden Registry”) by Order-in-Council 0008-1901, approved January 4, 1901.
Currently (to March 31, 2016) the Golden Registry of the Supreme Court continues as an active registry. As of 2016, the Golden Law Courts operate as a satellite of Cranbrook.
Scope and content
The series consists of one volume of a cause book listing the proceedings in matters concerning probates proved in the Supreme and County Courts of Golden between 1955 and 1980. The cause book is arranged chronologically, and lists the probate number, the name of the deceased, and a list of the activities involved in proving a will, along with their associated costs. The volume can be used as a backup index to Golden’s probate records. The cause book also lists which estates were administered by the Official Administrator.
There is a nominal index to the volume in the front of the ledger.
