    1. [CAN-BC] Re: Alternative means of finding BMDs

    3. In the 1970’s there may have been a write-up in a local newspaper. Some local genealogy societies have transcribed names & dates from local newspapers as my society has. We are in Campbell River, B.C. and I checked our transcriptions from 1957-1990 but there were no Gainsborough’s or Mellow’s. Roberta Hluska Sent from Mail for Windows 10 From: Peter Gainsborough via CAN-BRITISH-COLUMBIA Sent: Monday, August 20, 2018 1:47 PM To: Cc: Peter Gainsborough Subject: [CAN-BC] Alternative means of finding BMDs 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?
