    1. [CAN-BC] Alternative means of finding BMDs
    2. Peter Gainsborough
    3. Hello Listers (I hope it's OK to call you as such) My main areas of genealogical interest are my Gainsborough and Mellows families, and both have evolved into loose one-name studies. In England we're spoilt because all birth, marriage and death entries, from when civil registration started in mid 1837 to yesterday, are available for public inspection. When attempting to trace someone who has moved to another country e.g. Canada or Australia, I encounter that country's privacy laws which can severely hinder research. While trying to find a marriage which, I imagine, would have taken place in BC in 1970, I found the search page of the Royal BC Museum would only come forward in time as 1942. My question is, is there another way of finding said marriage? Peter Gainsborough

    3. In British Columbia - Vital Records - are not released until they become Public Record. Births to 1903 - used to be in the 101st year - now 121st year to protect the privacy of those who live longer. Marriages to 1942 - and Deaths to 1997. an inconvenience . Many other Provinces - are even more difficult. Our records can be viewed - copied. some Provinces - may show the indexed info - and require payment for the Registration. If an item appears at the BC Vital list - you might be able to view a full Registration at Family Search Org -online. Depending on your relationship to the persons of interest - and have an aprox time of the event - you may be able to request a search at Vital Statistics - I believe they search withing 5 years -[may have changed] Ordering the Registration can be very expensive. You have posted to British Columbia - Mail list - Do you believe the families settled here? Do you have an aprox. time frame Depending on time. Search Canada Census -last available 1921. Have you posted to other Canada Mail Lists - or Message Boards? Searching 1911 Canada Census - finds only 1 GAINSBOROUGH - Ontario/ Algoma/West / Sault Ste Marie. John GAINSBOROUGH - age 65 born 1845 USA -Lodger -to Canada 1910. British Columbia / Yale Cariboo / Merritt John MELLOS - age 32 - - Jan 1879 - born Greece to Canada 1909.
