Feature Updates

HOW ABOUT featuring a family (from the Olga Book or some family publication) and include an up-date of family members, where they went, what they did, who is left. Maybe  do two families a month-every month. How about picking a family that is in the news, as  the Campbell family was this last week. They had a family reunion and Louis and Mildred celebrated their 50th Wedding Anniversary in Walhalla on August 5th, 2005.  We could try and get an updated family picture of the family members. Or, better yet, send us your ideas

FEATURE UPDATES

Send us a current family picture and we will print it along with the article which is in the Olga Book or one of the family books that are available . A current family history may interest many readers.

 The first in a series of FEATURE UPDATES has come in, thanks to

Durland & Earline Siguaw,  former members of the church  parish.

This is the William (Bill) Siguaw family article, as it appeared in the Olga Centennial Book, pages 182 & 183, printed in 1981.  Bill and Frances lived  in Olga a few winters when the children were  in school. In order to attend to the “sister” school. Bill and Frances moved into Olga in 1954 and operated Bill’s Bar  until the early 1960’s.

The second picture is son # 1 Durland who married Earline McGauvran, another Olga native who lived here as a child, page 168 and 169 Olga Centennial Book. Earline is the daughter of Earl and Lucienne Dumas McGauvran. They were married at St Alphonsus in Lamgdon on August 18, 1948. Durland worked at the Langdon Depot for 11 years.  In 1961 the family moved to Bruien, WA.. They later retired in Milton, WA.

They are the parents of five.  Picture # 3.
