Looking for information on a group of people in Alberta about 1914 known as the Dukabours - spoken of by my Grandfather (spelling is phonetic - I do not know how it is spelled but a search under this spelling brought up this web site)

from the first time I heard about the Dukabours I was so interested in finding out more about this spiritual culture...You have to wonder is this culture active to this day, in which I was told... or maybe I just assumed

Re: your email regarding Doukabors.

Although it's been quite a while since your email posting, I thought I would send off a quick note to see if you are still researching this topic.

While on vacation earlier this month, I visited the area known as "Gilpin" just east of Grand Forks, BC. There is a very old, somewhat overgrown, graveyard tucked away on a little mountain road that holds the remains of approx. 90 souls. The majority of the sites are unmarked, however, a few show Doukabors born in Russia in 1888. This group has a fascinating history and I would like to know more about them myself.

After speaking with a local resident, it is my understanding there is still a strong community of Doukabors living in the area.

How did you fare?

I was born into a collony in Grand Forks called "Guilpen" I believe it is named Guilpen rural heights now. Tolstoy was the gentleman who advicated for us[these immagrants] to come to Canada as they were being hunted to extintion in Russia. The Doukhobors are still banned from ever returning to Russia even today. The term doukabor itself is a slang derogetory name such as any racial slander. The name itself means "Spirit Wrestler". The church named these people in this fastion as they were pegged by the church to be warriors for the devil. The doukabors however believed they were fighting alongside the beliefs of God and not against him. My family and I lived on this collony for some time and the beliefs are still with me today. The plight to allow us home to mother russia is still going on today and is being pursuued by a group known as the suns' of freedom.

Teresa, do a search on Grand Forks, Greenwood British Columbia, most have settled in those communities and the surounding area, Vergin is a name you might also want to research, you could also check with the Grand Forks chamber of commerece they will be able to point you in the right direction,as far as i know in southern alberta the people you are probably talking about there are called hurrietts(sp)they live in colonies and farm something like i guess the amish in the states,good luck and the C of C in Grand Forks would be a good start ,they would have all the info you would need i would think.

Rock Creek, British Columbia is major Dukabour country. Try doing a Canadian Google search for the town of Rock Creek, or Greenwood in BC, then look for different religions maybe.

The 'correct' spelling appears to be 'Doukhobors'...See the link below...

Yer calls em as ya sees em, Burr....Some lives across the Columbia river from Kinaird ,north of Trail...used to hear of religious[?] doings when I was growing up in the fifties from my uncle who lived in the area...quite interesting [?]... guess they have maybe been intigrated into everyday society due to "heathen" schooling. have always wondered about the term "Canuk"...guess it is a sequel to the term "You alls" R.E.L.
