When I look through the different families in this book it is apparent that the Truax area was inhabited less by Romanians and more by people from the UK directly or indirectly (Ontario).
Have a look through the Table of Contents to see if there is anything in the book that might be of interest. Sadly the book does not have an index so it might not be immediately obvious whether your ancestors can be found in this book or not. I might end up creating an index of my own for this book.
Below is a quote of the Foreword from the book.
With the incorporation of Truax as a village seventy years ago, we thought it imperative to collect and compile as much information as possible pertaining to our ancestors and their efforts to develop a new land.
It has taken a long time, but slowly the information has become a book. We would like to thank the many people who helped and gave us support and encouragement.
This book contains histories of Truax and school districts. We thank those who sent stories, which made this book a reality. We regret that some histories have not been submitted; these omissions will be a loss to future generations. We have tried to be accurate and offer apologies for errors, and for any who have been unintentionally omitted.
Our hope is that, as you read Golden Memories of Truax and Districts and shake hands across the miles and years, you will re-new old friendships maybe forgotten, and through these pages make new friends."
