"Watson" G. Funamoto and his album : May 29, 1942 Fitzwilliam, B.C.

The series consists of a photograph album created by G.W. Funamoto in 1942 to document his time in various Japanese internment camps along the Yellowhead Highway and the Slocan area.

The album contains 169 b&w photographs, including postcards and other commercially produced prints, and includes images of various Japanese internment camps such as Red Pass and Lemon Creek; images of a unidentified camps (possibly Princeton and Tashme) and images identified as Slocan City, Sandon, New Denver and Kamloops. There are also various commercially produced images of the Canadian Rockies, photographs of what may be family and friends and images of the BC Public Works activities involved in road building. There is very little in the way of captions and other identifying information although there are some inscriptions in English and Japanese. The album also contains two British Columbia Security Commission 5 cent coupons.

Timber tenures from the Kamloops Forest District

  • GR-3769
  • Series
  • 1962-1986

The series consists of various timber tenures from the Kamloops Forest District of the Department of Forests and its successors. Records date from 1962-1986.

Forest tenures in this series include cutting permits, timber licences, timber sale licences, timber sale harvesting licences, licences to cut, timber berths, tree farm licences and free use permits. The licences provided the licensee with the right to harvest timber from a specific area. These files document the management of timber licences and include records relating to the issuance, administration, planning, cancellation or deletion, extension and monitoring of the tenures. Files may have A numbers, T numbers, X numbers, or other numbers specific to a type of tenure.

The files may contain a copy of the licence, forms, reports, maps of the area that will be logged, ministry approvals, operating plans, annual reports, as well as a wide variety of correspondence with the licensee.

The records were transferred to the archives under several numbers in the Ministry of Forests ORCS schedule (881261). However, most of the records in this series predate the creation of ORCS, and may have file codes from the old Ministry of Forests File Directory, such as 850-16.

Records of E.T.W. Pearse

  • GR-3764
  • Series
  • [1915]

The series consists of receipts, financial tallies, and other notes that may have been created by ETW Pearse during his time as government agent at Kamloops. The records largely relate to the County Court case of Rex v. Marshall. The series also includes several trade licenses signed by Pearse dated June 1915, as well as inward correspondence sent by the Provincial Police. Although the provenance and creator of the records is unclear it appears that they were created by ETW Pearse in his capacity as government agent at Kamloops. The series also consists of a list of 71 men with their place of residence and occupation. This list appears to be in Pearse’s handwriting and is undated. Orders in council indicate that Pearse held a number of positions, including those of government agent, gold commissioner, registrar of vital events, and registrar of voters. It is therefore supposed that the list of men is a list of eligible voters in the area around, or slightly prior to, 1915.

The records were found loose in a volume of records from Kamloops County Court, and it is likely that they were subsumed into the Court as the responsibilities of government agent were assumed by other offices.

In Spring 1913 there is concern about the inadequacy of the Indian Act to punish those supplying liquor to Indians, hardship to the city of Kamloops when prisoners are released with no means to pay their fares home, more rigorous enforcement of the Offensive Weapons Act and inadequate pay for Provincial constables. The presentment from 1929 expresses concern about "the menace of assault" for teachers.

Kamloops Supreme Court wills

  • GR-3730
  • Series
  • 1986-2004

The series consists of original wills filed in the Supreme Court of Kamloops between 1986 and 2004. The wills are filed by a sequential number that also corresponds to a probate case file number found in GR-3001. The wills appear to be originals that were removed from the probate case files and filed separately. Not every individual with a probate file had a will.

A nominal index to probates can be found in GR-3001. Once a case file number has been found, this can be used to locate the correct file in the wills series.

Kamloops Supreme Court orders and judgements

  • GR-2451
  • Series
  • 1881-2000

The series consists of civil orders and reasons for judgment created between 1881 and 2000. Early records are from the Yale district, although the majority of records in the series relate specifically to Kamloops. The records are largely arranged chronologically by filing date, which can sometimes be several months after the order was issued in court. Between 1954 and 1973, orders were arranged by volume and folio numbers. Records were compiled into volumes based on filing date. Each folio is comprised of one order. The Archives does not currently have records for the period 1974 to 1982. Between 1983 and the late 1980s, some civil orders were filed by a sequential number. From the late 1980s onwards, the court filing system returned to using volumes and folios; however the volume number began again at 1. Many of the volumes contain indexes.

Civil orders are the formal expression of the ruling of the court and reasons for judgment provide the court's rationale. The records relate to a variety of civil matters, including adoption orders.
