If you’d like to learn more about Surrey’s history, there’s still time to register for one of the Surrey Archives’ spring lectures, continuing April 30 and May 7 in Cloverdale.

Next up is Surrey: A Photographic History, a visual presentation featuring hundreds of archival photos, revealing a Surrey you may not have seen before. That’s on Saturday, April 30.

Pioneer Profiles on Saturday, May 7 takes a look at what it was like for settlers to live in Surrey before 1900.

This session tells the stories of four local families. You’ll find out where they lived, why they came to Surrey and what legacies they left behind. Those early pioneers did not have it easy.

The sessions run from 11 a.m. to noon at the Surrey Archives, located at 17671 56 Avenue.

Previous topics included Community Names, an introduction to the origin of Surrey place names, and Giant Killers, where historian David Sandquist looked at the clearing of Green Timbers forest.

The session fee is $10. Pre-register by calling 604-502-6459.
