In 1924 Alex Bodnaresk built a two storey business with a cafe on the ground floor and hotel rooms on the second floor.  This was Kayville's first hotel and first cafe!

I believe that this is a photo to commemorate the departure of Ion "John" and Maranda Cojocari for Canada.  It was a common custom to have a photo taken on the day of departure.

We can guess the date of this photo to be around 1910 and that it was taken perhaps in Liteni, Comuna Moara, Suceava County, Romania.

On July 12, 1936 the parishioners of Saint Mary's Church north of Kayville gathered for this group photo on the occasion of the first visit by Bishop Policarp (Pompei) Morusca.

I only know TWO people in this whole photo!  Can you help me identify more?

Early in the life of Saint Mary's Church north of Kayville the parishioners gathered for this group photo.  I do not know ANYONE in the photo.

Saint Mary's Church was built in 1915 and I am guessing that this photo was taken close to that year but I don't know.  Neither do I know the occasion they were marking. Do you know more?

In 1936 a very large group of handsome people stood for the photo at the wedding of George J. Cojocar and Mary Varteniuk.  What a great find for us... I just wonder who they all are.  Do you know?

I am told that this is a wedding photo taken on July 24, 1912 in or around the town of Marcelin, Saskatchewan.  I was initially given only the names for people on the left side and then I discovered a more complete list of names in the book Land of Promise so I am pleased to say that the mystery on this photo is fading!

Perhaps you can fill in some of the remaining blanks for me?

In 1925 Nicolai "Nick" Donison has been suffering from a gastric ulcer and sought medical treatment at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, USA in a bid to regain his health.  Despite the state-of-the-art care Nick, father of six, would be dead two weeks later.  This photo was taken on the day of his funeral.  There are a couple of unknown faces in the small crowd.  Perhaps you know who they were?
