Scope and content

The series consists of cause books created by the Quesnel Supreme Court between 1915 and 1977. While the records are largely civil in nature, the cause book for the period 1973 to 1977 also includes some criminal charges. The series also consists of indexes arranged alphabetically by surname. Each cause book entry includes the case number, the style of cause, solicitors' names, the nature of the charges, and a list of the proceedings. Cause books are often the first step in Supreme Court research and can often be used to locate court orders.
