Series consists of cause books from the Nanaimo Supreme Court from 1887-1890 and 1894-1948. Cause books provide the framework for Supreme Court civil action cases and may include the names of parties, the dates when proceedings occurred, and can be used to determine volume and folio numbers for locating final orders and/or judgements. Cause books were used by the courts until approximately the mid-1970s. They are often the only source of information for divorces that were not finalized since no final order would have been granted and case files are destroyed.
