I have been spending most of my time in the last couple weeks working on a history book about my husband’s parents and not getting too much else done. I am discovering many interesting things about my in-laws as I comb through family photos, diaries and records. I learned that both my husband’s father and grandfather did alternate military service in a lumber camp.
Dave’s grandfather Abram Driedger served in the Asov Forestry Camp in Ukraine in 1913 just prior to World War I.
Dave’s father Cornie Driedger worked in a lumber camp in Montreal River Ontario during World War II.
