Scope and content

The series consists of photocopies of computer printouts of court indexes. Although copies in this series were created by the New Westminster County Court, the indexes refer to records created by several levels of the court system, including both the Supreme and County Courts in New Westminster. The series covers civil cases initiated between 1978 and 1981. The indexes list the date of initiation, the name of the individual or business involved, whether that individual or business is the plaintiff or defendant, and the case number.

These copies of the indexes were created for staff at the BC Archives prior to the transferal of original indexes from the New Westminster courts. They were retained as a reference set, although they are likely to have been mostly or completely superseded with the subsequent transferal of various indexes from the courts.

The indexes list a variety of cases, including but not limited to divorces and probates. Records in this series are arranged first by year and then alphabetically within the year groupings.
