About

Welcome to the Bateman Blog

The Bateman Blog is related to http://www.trainwreckof78.ca website which is in memory of my father, Kenneth Scott Bateman, who died in 1978 when his CNR locomotive was pushed into the Skeena River by a slide in northern British Columbia near Terrace. There are multiple stories of my father, photos, news reports, contributions from other sources, and the history of the railroad in Canada and BC. There is also a forum and related links.

The Bateman Blog is about the Bateman family. ancestry, photos, events, and stories. The opportunity to contribute will be given to all family members and those who request to do so. This summer (July 3-5) there was a Bateman Family Reunion in Nanaimo, BC. While the turnout numbers were small, the hearts were big. Everyone was comfortable sharing their lives with others
