I came to find-a-grave probably for the same reason as everyone else; to research my family history. I absolutely love learning about genealogy and history, and I'm delighted to help in this small way by posting pictures of graves. Feel free to request photos, but you may have to be patient for the results..

If you have a correction or find a duplicate, let me know and I'll fix it as soon as I am able.

I'm more than happy to transfer memorials to relatives, just drop me a message to let me know, and please make sure there's a way to contact you!

I can post photos in these areas:

Armstrong, BC
Coldstream, BC
Lumby, BC
Oyama, BC
Vernon, BC
Winfield, BC

If there's any requests for Kelowna, BC I could do those as well, but since I don't go there very often you may have a bit of a wait =) Cheers!

I have added the information you provided. Unfortunately, I live in Washington state. My fear of heights makes mountain driving difficult, so I am not sure if I will ever visit the area. My husband's grandparents married in Michel, next door to Natal, and her younger brother was buried in Elk River Cemetery. I added the cemetery so I could add his memorial and request a photo.
Then, I started to add others. Ima BC Graver, #102803989, completed the job. She lives near there and is visiting the cemeteries in an orderly fashion. I believe she mentioned that she would possibly be working on photos for Elk River later this year.

RE: Thank you
Hi Michelle,

It took a lot of work, but I also had my Grandpa tell me a lot. You just have to find that one person that knows your Pepper line. Too bad your Uncle Ken wasn't still alive to tell you. If you knew your Great Grandparents names that might help. If you knew where your grandpa Burt was born that would help. Maybe call the cemetery where your grandpa is buried and see if they have his birth place. At least then you would have information to get his birth certificate. Then you might be able to find his parents on the census or in the canadian war papers.
