Okanagan History is an annual report published by the Okanagan Historical Society and is generally available in the early fall. Okanagan History contains articles of historical interest on a variety of topics relating to the history of the Okanagan Valley. Included in the reports are biographies, stories, and essays accompanied by photographs and maps. Also included are a few reports by society members, the article written by the winner of the Student Essay contest, and a membership list.
Copies of the report can be found in museums and bookstores in the Okanagan Valley and from members of the local branches. The report can also be ordered online by contacting the Corresponding Secretary. The Report costs $25 plus $10 shipping. If preferred, you may request that your name be placed on the subscription list to receive the book every year. It is mailed out in September and an invoice is included. Back issues of some of the volumes may also be purchased.
In 2006 an online index database was developed for researchers to more easily access information in the reports. The Index to the Reports is updated every year following the release of a new report and can be accessed on this website. A printed Index to the Okanagan Historical Society Reports #1-81 (1924-2017) is available. The Index is 8.5 x 11, 552 pages, 3-holed punched, shrink-wrapped. It costs $35 plus postage and handling (approximately $20).
We are pleased to announce that we have partnered with The University of British Columbia Okanagan to bring the OHS reports online. The reports are now available on the B.C. Regional Digitized History website, beginning with the first issue in 1926, with a rolling wall embargo of five years.
