How do I search for private textual records on the BC Archives web site?

0

First complete a search using the BC Archives Search Gateway of the web site. Be sure to select the textual records index. However, not all private records are described on the BC Archives web site. If you do not have any success, then visit the BC Archival Union List (BCAUL). Then complete the same search. If your search is successful, be sure to record both the record numbers and the repository (BCAUL contains listings for 173 archives in the province, including the BC Archives). Finally, if your search is still unsuccessful you should send a written inquiry to the BC Archives so an archivist can check the manual card catalogues and lists of unprocessed records.
