Kelowna Supreme Court wills

  • GR-3707
  • Series
  • 1986-2002

The series consists of original copies of wills probated in the Kelowna Supreme Court between 1986 and 2002. The wills are organized by probate number, and are generally arranged in numerical order. Files in boxes 15 and 16 contain wills dating from approximately 1987 to 1993 that were not filed elsewhere in the accession. Researchers are encouraged to check these boxes if they cannot locate the file they are looking for in the other boxes. While the wills are generally filed by probate number, there is one file that has been arranged alphabetically. This spans several years and appears to contain wills that were missed in the original filing.

An nominal index to probate records for Kelowna can be found in GR-2226. Researchers should use this index to identify the probate number for the relevant individual, and then use this number to find the original will.

Records are retained under ORCS 51460-30 of the Court Services Operational Records Classification System (schedule 100152).

Salmon Arm civil orders

  • GR-3742
  • Series
  • 1980-1995

The series consists of civil court orders issued by the Salmon Arm Supreme Court and the County Court of Yale holden at Salmon Arm between 1980 and 1995. Orders are a formal expression of the court’s will, and orders in this series cover a variety of civil issues, including adoptions, foreclosures, family maintenance, divorce, letters of administration, consent orders, and will disputes.

When the records arrived at the Archives, some were loose and others were housed in Shannon folders. The records in the first box and most of the second had no discernible order. Archives staff arranged the orders by the order number in the upper right corner. Once records began to be arranged by volume and folio number, a sense of original order became apparent for the remainder of the records. The date provided in the file list is based on the date of filing.

The series also consists of two orders from the County and Supreme Courts of Vancouver. At least one was ordered transferred to Salmon Arm, but as the Vancouver records were loose, it was impossible to create any linkage between existing Salmon Arm records and the Vancouver transfers. These Vancouver records can be found at the end of box 830539-0004.
