Section E: HBCA Private Records Finding Aid

This online finding aid has been set up to assist researchers find records classified under Section E (Private Records). Only those records available on microfilm have been listed. Where parts have not been microfilmed, it is because the original documents are held elsewhere, or because the items are transcriptions or copies of the originals.

The records themselves are not available on this website; to access them you will have to order microfilm via the Microfilm Loan Program, read published collections of records, or visit the HBCA.

What follows here is a reference tool that will allow you to find:

  • what private records are kept at the HBCA, and for which years, with descriptions of the kinds of documents available; and
  • how to access them -location codes and microfilm numbers.

Records are listed by type and volume number, referenced against the microfilm reels on which they are available (if they have been microfilmed).
