Masonic History In The Nanaimo Area

As part of our series on Masonic History In The Nanaimo Area we are gradually putting up web pages listing the Historic Membership Lists of Masonic Lodges in the Nanaimo area.

We hope these lists will be interesting and useful to historians, genealogists and other researchers.  Please note that the Historic Membership Lists we put online will be at least 50 years old in order to comply with current privacy legislation.

Here are the Historic Membership Lists of Doric Lodge No. 18 for 1940 to 1949
