About

Hi and welcome to bcgoldrushpress.com!

The focus of this blog is the British Columbia gold rush era (1850s to 1870s).  I include my sketches of interesting gold rush characters and biographies as well as other history snippets.  You will also find a few of my creative non-fiction short stories.  Some of the characters are real people from history; however, the dialogue is fictional and no intention is made to misrepresent historical facts.

If you have any comments or feedback, please get in touch.  You can leave a comment here or send me a message by twitter @bcgoldrushpress.

Cheers,

M. Poncelet

    Hello!

    We are trying to find traces of Jacob Davis in Fraser River area around 1858 – 1867.

    Jacob Davis is our ancestor form Latvia.

    I’ve looked and attempted to search the archives, but couldn’t find anything relevant.

    Are there any other sources of data available? Could you please point/connect me with local historians that can help? We are planning a visit to BC in June and we want to come as well prepared as possible.

    Best regards,
