As a project to mark B.C.'s 150th anniversary, Don Reksten and Leona Taylor augmented information published in a January, 1908 edition of the Victoria Times Colonist that listed Victoria residents who had been living in British Columbia since 1858. Included is a map of the Ross Bay Cemetery that marks the graves of numerous people included on the Roster of the Fifty-Eighters. The booklet entitled Roster of the Fifty-Eighters (Victoria: Old Cemeteries Society, 2008) also includes pertinent obituaries and newspaper stories related to the Victoria pioneers who are listed.
