Prince George Supreme Court divorce cause books and case record cards

  • GR-3740
  • Series
  • 1961-1984

The series consists of cause books and case record cards for divorces in the Prince George Supreme Court between 1961 and 1984. The cause books and case cards can be used to find a volume and folio number, which can then be used to obtain a copy of the final divorce order. Cause books and case record cards often provide the only remaining evidence of a case if it was abandoned or dismissed, and no order was issued.

Cause books were used by the courts until approximately the mid 1970s. After this time, case cards were used until the courts turned to digital systems in the 1990s. Cause book and case card entries typically include the date of filing, the date and place of marriage, the names of the parties and their solicitors, and an account of the case proceedings. Entries in the cause book and case record cards are arranged chronologically by filing date.
