Transcribimus: documents of early Vancouver and beyond

Transcribimus is Latin for "we transcribe"

We support a network of volunteers who work to make historical documents available free of charge for online access by researchers and the general public

To date (July, 2017) we've transcribed more than 300 sets of Vancouver City Council minutes, more than 2,000 hand-written pages.

The minutes from 1886 - 1891 can be seen through this link to the website of the Global Civic Policy Society website. See the transcripts

The minutes from 1892 onward are hosted here on Transcribimus.  

When our project is further developed, the minutes will be hosted by the Vancouver City Archives and on the archival site Internet Archive.
