Name of creator
The British Columbia government established a Supreme Court registry at Grand Forks, known as the Grand Forks Registry, by Order-in-Council #0198-1900, dated April 10, 1900.
On 31 May 2002, Grand Forks court ceased full-time operation and operated as a temporary circuit court of Rossland between June and August 2002. It closed again, but re-opened as a permanent circuit court of Rossland on 5 February 2003. The successor to the Grand Forks Registry is the Rossland Court Registry.
Scope and content
The series consists of four volumes of indexed cause books, created in the Grand Forks registry between 1900 and 1969. A typical cause book entry lists the style of cause, solicitors' names, nature of claim, and the dates of various proceedings in each case. The entry also provides the case file number. For Supreme Court cases, cause books are often used as a starting point for research. The cause books include information on adoption, divorce, chattel mortgages, and other civil proceedings.
The records are arranged by case number, and are also chronological.
