The South Okanagan Genealogical Society was contacted earlier this year by Donna Zimmerman from the Last Post, they requested information on several veterans who were buried in unmarked graves up at Lakeview Cemetery. Their intention was to put markers on these graves when all the information was gathered.
I collected as much information that was available within obituaries, newspaper articles from the 1940’s and death registrations for these men and sent it off, the information was just what they needed to prove these men were legitimate veterans. The Last Post just informed me that the new markers were installed at Lakeview Cemetery.
My husband and I went up to the cemetery and found two men hard at work installing these markers. The South Okanagan Genealogical Society has recorded all of the cemeteries in the South Okanagan and are in the process of digitizing them all.
