Biographical history

The British Columbia government established a Supreme Court registry at Penticton, effective May 1, 1922. It was approved and ordered by Order-in-Council 0421-1922 (April 12, 1922).

Currently (to March 31, 2016) the Penticton Registry of the Supreme Court continues as an active registry.

Custodial history

Volumes of County and Family court indexes appear to have been in the custody of the Supreme Court registry prior to their transferal to the BC Archives.

Scope and content

The series consists of index ledgers created by the Penticton Supreme Court between 1958 and 1990. The location of the cause books to which they refer is unknown. Two volumes dating from 1989-1990 also include indexes for Penticton County and Family courts.
