A Challenging Search in Canada: A Case Study
I don't have much about my dad's father's side of the family. They resided in Brandon, Manitoba and were on the 1911 Census as Stephi, Annie and Mary Pravada . I don't know if Stephi was short for something, but his headstone says Steve.
I also know that, for whatever reason, there are 3 different spellings of their last name. One being Pravada (per censes), one being Prawada and my maiden name was Prewedo.
My family attended a Ukranian Catholic Church in Brandon. I'd really like to find their immigration record or more about the family.Melissa's query intrigued me as ancestors with such a variety in their surname are often very challenging to find. And I like a challenge! So I did a little research on Melissa's behalf and thought I'd share with readers how I found records that will provide answers for Melissa and will take her back at least one more generation to the parents of both Stephi and Annie
