New Genealogy Records for BC Now Online

The Royal BC Museum/Archives has uploaded historical records of births, marriages and deaths in British Columbia. 

In B.C, vital records can be released 20 years after a death, 75 years after a marriage and 120 years after a birth.

On the birth records you can find name, date, place of birth, parents’ names as well as mother’s maiden name. 

On marriage records you can find name, age, place of birth and marital status of each partner as well as date and location of the ceremony, names of the parents, names of witnesses and the person who performed the wedding ceremony.

Death records list name and date of birth of the deceased as well as the date, place and the cause of death.

Access is free.
