Walk through Campbell River history

Walk through history: The Campbell River Genealogy Society was part of the recent B.C. Historical Federation Conference held here recently. The society opened their library located in the Maritime Museum for a tour. Librarians were on hand to talk about the vast collection of genealogical information the society has amassed over the years. A coffee break along with sweets baked by society members was provided after the tour. On Sunday, the delegates were also taken on a tour of the first cemetery opened in Campbell River. In all, 12 grave sites were visited with a short presentation given at each by a society member. A few of the grave sites on the tour were, Vanstone, Perkins, Thulin, Masters, Painter and Haines.  The society is planning on a tour which would be open to the public in the future. - Photo submitted
