The history and birthplace of the Suszczynski and Maksymiak Families. The families they left behind, their journey to Canada and the new life and family they made together. This is the story of my Grandpa and Grandma Sopko.
So much time has past. I am in my 65th year. I have the curiosity and time to trace family roots and share the memories of family members those that have past and those that are still with us. My name is Catherine Marie Fairclough (Sopko). I am of Polish and Italian decent. I have been fortunate to have a big Italian family. I met my Great Grandparents Ralph and Coccita Meagle, their children, grandchildren and so on.
My Polish family consisted of my Grandparents, 2 Aunts and 3 cousins. Plus My Parents and 3 siblings. My Grandmother had 3 of her brothers immigrate to BC Canada. We have met some of their children.
