Geneablogy: An occasional Journal about our experiences exploring our heritage

Tuesday, June 20, 2000

The National Archives of Canada has computerized their index of immigration arrivals between 1925 and 1935, something that didn't appear to be available when I sent off my query to them on May 12th. So I did a search for the surname "Zurbyk" in the year 1930, and was rewarded with a single entry for one Josepha Zurbyk (Grandma!). She arrived in Quebec City, Quebec, on June 28, 1930 on the Cunard ship Antonia. She was 18 years old and is listed as being of Polish nationality. The immigration record is part of record group 76, in the 1930 series volume 10, on page 172, National Archives microfilm reel T-14765. The Mormons only have immigration records for Quebec up to 1900. Larry, my cousin who wrote the history of the Zurbyk family in Canada, who lives up near Ottawa, has offered to go to the National Archives and get the records if I can come up with the information. Looks like I did!
