Overlooked histories in Nanaimo

The research team has trained in the process of researching archives. They are now in the process of planning to visit archives, museums and libraries in their regions. Our local researchers are excited to get out into the field!

The Nanaimo Museum is an example of a local museum that may have archival information of value to our researchers, as indicated in an article by the BC Historical Federation. Here is a quote from the article about the museum: “There are also overlooked histories, from Metis to Jewish and Black histories.”

This information is interesting to our local researcher Rhaina who will be conducting research on Vancouver Island!

Do you know of overlooked histories in your region?
