Name of creator
In 1901, the British Columbia government established a Supreme Court registry at Vernon, in the Cariboo Judicial District, by Order-in-Council #0084-1901, (March 6, 1901) and effective April 1, 1901.
Currently (to March 31, 2016) the Vernon Registry of the Supreme Court continues as an active registry.
Scope and content
The series consists of wills filed with the Vernon Supreme Court between 1986 and 1998.
The series is arranged chronologically and by will code. The will code generally consists of a two digit number representing the year in which the will was filed, followed by a slash and a sequential will number. A single file includes multiple wills and the file title provides the range of will numbers contained within each file.
The nominal probate index available in GR-1578 provides both the name of the deceased and the sequential code number. Using this number, it is possible to locate the appropriate will file. Not all individuals listed in the probate index had wills.
