Grandview Database v.25

We have today uploaded a new and updated version of the Grandview Database.  

This version incorporates more than 3,700 new and amended data points since the previous release

  • More than 1,400 additional entries have been added from the 1917 City Directory;
  • More than 2,000 additional entries have been compiled from the 1921 census;
  • And about 250 miscellaneous entries have been added from the Vancouver Daily World (1917-1922).

The miscellaneous entries, which we have been adding slowly to the mix each month, include births, marriages, deaths, arrests, assaults, thefts, accidents, fires, staff hiring, and social occasions of all sorts.  They help to flesh out the details of the lives of those living in Grandview one hundred years ago.

In July we will complete both the 1917 Directory and the 1921 census.

We hope you find the Database of value, and we encourage and welcome corrections, and additions which should be sent to jakking@shaw.ca.
