Fernie Supreme Court orders

  • GR-3720
  • Series
  • 1983-2002

The series consists of orders from the Supreme Court in Fernie. The orders date from 1983 to 2002 and the series is largely composed of divorce orders. There is one folder of adoption orders and one of general court orders, which also includes orders related to probates and estates. Divorce orders were originally arranged by volume and folio number, but this system appears to have changed in 1999 and the records were subsequently arranged by filing date. Researchers should note that there is sometimes a gap between the date the order is issued and the date it is filed. Other orders appear to be arranged by filing date.

Cranbrook Supreme and County Court civil orders

  • GR-3704
  • Series
  • 1955-1999

The series consists of civil orders from both the Supreme and County Courts of Cranbrook. The orders were created between 1955 and 1999. Records from the Supreme and County levels were interfiled together and are arranged by volume and folio number. Records in this series consist of adoption, divorce, probate, and other civil orders. In most cases, the orders have not been divided by type and are filed together. However, probate orders from 1973 to 1974 were split into their own files separate from the remainder of the orders. Civil orders represent the formal expression of the ruling of the court.

When the records originally arrived at the Archives, they were housed in shannon files that were based on volume number. For preservation purposes, the records have been removed from the shannon files and rehoused in acid-free folders. As the majority of the volumes were quite large, the contents of each shannon file has been divided between several acid-free folders.

Researchers should note that some volumes or portions of volumes were not transferred to the Archives, and their whereabouts are unknown.

Golden Supreme Court civil orders

  • GR-3766
  • Series
  • 1960-1991

The series consists of civil orders created in the Supreme Court in Golden between 1960 and 1991. Orders are a formal expression of the court’s will, and orders in this series cover a variety of issues, including adoption, probate and divorce.

The series is arranged by volume, and then by folio according to filing date. Some folios may not be clearly labeled, may not be filed chronologically or may have duplicated folio numbers. Each folio is labeled with a coded registry number. Some additional documents may be interfiled with numbered folios, such as affidavits. There is only one partial index for volume 4 included.

The dates listed in the file list are derived from the date on which the order was filed. Although the filing date for the majority of the records corresponds closely to when the order was issued, this is not always the case, and there are instances in which orders were filed months after being issued.

Originally the files were arranged in Shannon files based on volume number. For space and preservation reasons, the records have been placed in acid-free folders. Each volume was split into multiple folders, which are linked by volume number.
