The University of BC has placed more digitized West Kootenay/Boundary newspapers online, a boon for local historians.

The latest additions include the British Columbia News of Kaslo, Cascade Record, and Nelson Daily Canadian, plus short-lived papers like the Arrow Lakes Advocate, West Fork News of Beaverdell, and Slocan Prospector of Three Forks. Most date to the 1890s or early 1900s.

They can be browsed by date and searched by keyword at https://tinyurl.com/oohq2xs.

The BC Historical Newspapers project rolled out in 2011 previously granted digital access to the early files of about a dozen local newspapers including the Nelson Miner, Grand Forks Sun, and Phoenix Pioneer.

In all, you can now search 94 papers from across BC and 29,146 editions ranging from 1865 to 1989.
