The Letters: Imaging and Transcription
This project reunites the McQueen family correspondence in one virtual archive. All of the original documents in the four repositories where they are housed - the Nova Scotia Archives and Records Management, the British Columbia Archives, the Nicola Valley Museum Archives Association, and the Rossland Museum & Archives - have been imaged. While most of the letters are written by a well-schooled hand and are therefore easy to read, transcription facilitates computerized searches. The correspondence has been transcribed and about half of it (1866-1888) has been encoded. In the near future, we hope to encode the rest of the letters. The scrapbooks and drawings are best consulted in their imaged form.
