The Maple Ridge Family History Group received a 2016 Maple Ridge Heritage Commendation Award for excellence in enhancing understanding of community history for this project which used family history research techniques to discover an early BC settler family’s story. In the process of clarifying historical questions, they have been able to place the family and its community in regional and national context.
