Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
August 31, 2007:
Thanks to Shirley Morozuk for this great picture. See also the Morozuk family page.
Can anyone identify some of these enthusiastic students?
My Uncle Peter Morozuk is the young lad - far left without any shoes on. It would
be nice to discover the exact year of this photo. Could you let me know if anyone
recognizes it? Thank you!
I've been making a lot of progress on the Morozuk Family Tree. Managed to get my
grandparents birth certificates and I had a translator in the Ukraine put it all
into English for me.

Hi Mary. Al. Shirley,
Those two Leahy boys, are my first cousins their youngest sister Nora should have
been there , but I don't recognize her.[may not have been there that day] at first glance
I took Bob Potvin to be one of the Leahy boys , Shirley , in your search for your
roots you,have given us another glimpse into the past.
Although my wheel's turn slower, always interested

Well one more girl identified and another 1/2 identified. to be continued...
I received the following email from Annona Cahill Lawther.
The 4th from the left is Irene Guilbeault and the one beside her is another
Guilbeault girl but I can't remember her name at the moment (senior's moment
that is!!). I'll ask Helen Landrigan when she gets back.
November 3, 2009:
The photo below includes Helen Guilbeault / Guibeault (not sure if spelling is correct) - second from left.
I thought maybe she is the missing Guilbeault girl in the class photo in the link above.
I recently received a few photos that belonged to my grandparents, but nobody in the family can identify them. Perhaps I can email
them to you?? One never knows who you might recognize.
