- Hal’s Research on Vancouver Voters, 1886by Hal Bell-Irving
Here is a summary by someone at UBC of the book that I was talking about today:
“Vancouver Voters, 1886: A Biographical Dictionary” which contains biographical vignettes and genealogies for about 415 of the 528 persons on the first Vancouver voters list, which was compiled in October 1886.
It is a great resource which can be added to your Resource List.
I have also attached a copy of a page from the Vancouver Public Library which indicates it has 3 copies of the book. I couldn’t find a digital version when I had a quick look.
