My sister and I are working on her husband's family, trying to find the place of burial of grandparents in the Pakulak line. They are Mike and Nellie Pakulak. (earlier Nellie was probably known as Nastia)
Nellie (nee Burniak) Pakulak died in 1926.
We know Mike died around 1954 to 1956.
Their homestead was NW 1/4 Sec 6, Twp 36, Range 3, West of Second. We've seen the district name "Woodlight" on his land grant papers, but we don't know if he still lived there at time of death.
We THINK their children may have gone to school in the STENEN or HYAS area.
Can you please do us the favour of searching for both Mike and Nellie Pakulak gravemarkers in your collection of photos, in the Stenen cemetery/cemeteries?
After his first wife's death, Mike married twice more, so you can see that when he died, it is possible he was buried with his last wife, instead of Nellie. We just don't know. We think he lived to about 80 years old.
Thank you very much for any help you can give. It's a great service to people like us who live so far from the area where our ancestors settled.
(We are on Vancouver Island, where Mike and Nellie's son Bill Pakulak moved in the 1940s.)
