Thanks Mike & George will do my best through this maze! If my dad could survive Normandy, I can do this for him.
Just wanted to pass on that my grandfather George Dimor and his brother John Dimor were from Revelstoke, my mom and her 3 sisters were born there in 1923, 1928 and 1930 (Thelma, Georgina and Norma).  George used to own a restaurant in Revelstoke in the 1920's.........
