The Campbell River Genealogy Society has identified the owner of some personal documents given to the society in hopes that they could locate her.

Unfortunately, the owner passed away last year. A local thrift store discovered the documents in an envelope that was stuffed in a bag of knitting wool. According to the documents, Anna Maria Kohler was born in Amsterdam and then moved to Australia. Included in the envelope is an extract of Kohler’s register of birth as well as other documents, postcards and some family photos. More details may be forthcoming.
