Family and Friends

This material includes general family topics. I have divided them into several groups.

    In 1959 a friend and I hitch-hiked from P.E.I. to B.C.
    We were picked up in Western Ontario by Bill Reimer and his son-about 10 years old.
    They were going to Renata B.C.
    We were with them for a couple of days. A really nice man
    Any connection there?

      Hi Lorne,
      1959 would make me about 15 years old – living in Vancouver. My connection to Renata was my Grandfather’s brother Jacob Reimer. He had a small orchard there that provided us kids with a wonderful location for adventures and family gatherings. I don’t recall meeting another (older) Bill Reimer there on our visits. My Great-Grandfather and Great-Grandmother are buried in Renata (under a slab of concrete that was poured over the cemetery before it was flooded as part of the High Arrow Dam in 1967). Some Renata photos can be seen via http://billreimer.ca/personal/documents/FromPJReimersRenataAlbumFromRenataBillReimer.pdf.
      If you finally find the right Bill Reimer connection I would be interested in his relationship to Jacob or other Reimers from Renata.
      Regards,
      Bill
