Burnaby is a suburb of Vancouver - the only hint you get as you go from Vancouver to Burnaby is that you cross Boundary Rd, and it's got to mark the boundary of something, eh.

EDIT - Ooops 1320 Terry is a couple of blocks S of Pike, just E of downtown (just E of I-5)

Hi mgnv

Thank you very much for all your trouble,the Canada side of the family has been quite easy to find ,it is the USA side that has proven difficult.

The first son appears to have changed his name to Allan ,the second son moves around and appears to have married several times and the info on the third son does not tie up date wise.

Hi Christine,
I'm starting to research my mother's side of the family, found this website and saw your posts. I am the daughter of Beverly Whittington. I don't know much about the family, but can maybe fill in some blanks

Welcome to GR and the Boards Denise.

The best way to let Christine know of your interest, is to send her a personal message aka PM.

Click on her board name, which in this instance is 'Paul'. As long as Paul/Christine is still has the same email address as 12 months ago, GR will notify them that you are trying to make contact

Good luck!
