Biographical history

[Archivist’s Note: The history of the County Court at Revelstoke needs to be determined. It is known that a registrar of the County Court of Kootenay, held at Revelstoke, existed at least as early as December 1898. Source: Order-in-Council #0637-1898, December 19, 1898].

In 1965, by Order-in-Council 1502-1965, effective July 1, 1965, a registry of the County Court of Yale was established at Revelstoke.
