1931

April 16

"Dimitro Demidiuk and  __  [?] during visit, Sudbury, Ontario, April 16, 1931"

  • I recall mother [when they were in Belarus (Poland - 1921-1930)  telling me of having received a letter from a friend (Dimitro Demidiuk) who was already in Canada, noting that every day there was like Easter, with white bread available on the table at every meal. That same friend later came back to Poland to his wife and family, as he could not get sufficient work during the depression to bring them to Canada or support them. He wrote a few years later, asking my parents if they could send him a few dollars, as he could not afford to buy stamps to send letters.

  • During the winter of 1936, father decided that he should take a trip to Springfield, Mass., USA, to visit his father Daniel whom he had not seen since 1913, and also his cousin Pavlo Woytovich who lived in the same city. ... Father came back from the USA weighing probably 170 pounds, about twenty pounds heavier than before and very healthy looking, as is evident in pictures of him with his father and prosperous looking cousin Paul.
