Scope and content

File consists of three volumes of transcripts of evidence presented at proceedings held in Nelson, Grand Forks, and Trail. 110 witnesses were examined at these hearings and an alphabetical index is available at the beginning of each volume. The contents of the proceedings deal with the economic and cultural practices of the Doukhobors and Doukhobor views on marriage, divorce, registration of vital events, military service, and education. Several of the Doukhobors interviews also recount their journey from Russia to Canada, including their time in Saskatchewan before moving to British Columbia. A number of non-Doukhobors are also interviewed and discuss their interactions with the Doukhobor community and whether they consider Doukhobors "desirable citizens" in Canada. Community Doukhobors were represented by counsel A.M. Johnson of Nelson.
