Jarvis-Zwarych (Zwaryck) Connection
I am looking for information on the Zwarych family that lived in Fort William, Thunder Bay, Ontario. My grandfather was born around 1928 but was eventually taken in by a family with the last name Jarvis.
I don't know how accurate the information I have is and my sources have passed away (grandfather, grandmother, and my own father).
My grandfather was Stephan Zwarych. He change his wife and kids names to Jarvis is 1972. He was born in 1928. He had a brother who died at 11 months old in 1925 (William). His father was Dmytro or Metro and his Mother was named Rose or Ras (nee Tkah).
We were led to believe he was given away after his mother died and Dmytro remarried and started a new family. Stephan may have a full or half sister named Eva who became an Opera singer? He was supposedly 12 years old when this happened.
If this rings a bell in your families' story telling please get in touch with me.
