I am searching for any information or records of my grandmother and her family from Smidyn. I do know a little bit about them.
According to the Canadian Immigration Service, they left from Copenhagen on April 23rd, 1930 and arrived in Halifax Nova Scotia Canada on May 3rd, 1930. The family consisted of her father, Michal Polak (39yrs), her mother, Feofanja Polak (36yrs), my grandmother, Anisja Polak (18yrs), and her two sisters, Anna Polak (9yrs) and Zofja Polak (8yrs).
On the Canadian Immigration Service documents they are asked to list the name and address of the nearest relative in the country they came from. There is what seems to be two names listed that are carried down for all five people in my grandmothers family. Listed on the line for her father Michal, is his father and the name provided is Filip Polak in Smidyn. There is a second name however there is no title for this name. The name is Zablocie Maciejow and the town given is Kowel however I believe this to be an error and probably should be Kovel which would make more sense because it is near Smidyn. All their passports are listed as being issued in Kovel (Kowel) on March 14th 1930.
Any information that could be provided would be greatly appreciated.
