    Biographical history

    The Delta Diggers is a support group for genealogists living in Delta. The group was informally assembled in 1989 to provide a discussion and support group to assist local genealogists with their research and other genealogical work. The Diggers meet monthly and conduct their meetings in an informal setting. Along with operating as a support and discussion group, the Diggers undertake long-term genealogical projects such as the compilation and publication in 1998 of the Index of Newspapers, 1902-1914 in Delta, British Columbia. This publication consists of an alphabetical list of individuals whose names have been published in Delta newspapers in connection with marriages, births, death and other events of interest to genealogists.
