Parish registers are the main resource for English research prior to the census (1841) and Civil Registration (1837). With the proliferation of digitized records on the internet, this research is becoming much easier to access. Wills can also provide genealogical information, and it is surprising who made wills in the 1700s. Using these resources (if they have survived!), English research can be taken back as far as the late 1500s.

In his book "River of Mists", best-selling author and award-winning historian Geoff Mynett returns to the Skeena River community of Hazelton BC to shed new light on the wide spectrum of characters who left their mark on the area. Delving as far back in time as the early 1820s, Mynett covers over a century of change in the small community which, due to its location at the forks of the Skeena and Bulkley rivers and proximity to mountain ranges, seems destined to be a hub of activity--always industrious, often prosperous, and occasionally scandalous--while maintaining the charming nature of small town.
