Peace Country Land Settlement Database

We sponsor a Peace Country Land Settlement Database, being done at the South Peace Regional Archives and led by Dr. David Leonard. The database contains information relating to over 30,000 applications for Crown land, homesteads and other public lands by settlers in the Peace River Country of Alberta and British Columbia.
