GENERATION I

Harry1 (Gregory) Myslawchuk (Feb 12, 1872 – May 26, 1953) m Katarina (Katherine) Giggs or Jiggs, possibly Gegg or Werenicz? (Nov 22, 1873 – Apr 10, 1957)

          (Gegg and Giggs from Manitoba birth records for 2 sons; Werenicz was identified as “father” from the 1906 census.  Granddaughters Marlene Ellis & Elizabeth Polisnook said her maiden name was Jiggs.)


          According to Marlene and Elizabeth, Harry changed the spelling of the last name to Myslawchuk from Mislawchuk because he had a cousin Harry and their mail was getting mixed up.  Also, they said that their mother, Emily, claimed that Katarina was a gypsy of Polish origin.


The name Gregory or Grigor instead of Harry was given to me by Lesley Schiller.  Fran (Luy) Hamm says her grandfather was known as Harry and not Gregory.  Census records below bear this out.  The family arrived in Canada about 1902.  They may have come from Sokol, in Austria at that time but now probably part of Poland.  They could speak no English.  They landed in Montreal and took the train west.  In East Selkirk is a small monument that marks the dispersal point for the immigrants from Europe.

 

On his tombstone in The Poplar Park Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Holy Trinity Cemetery, the name Gregory is used.  The name is written in Cyrillic script, ГРЕГОРИИ МИСЛАВЧУК for Gregory Myslawchuk.  The extra И is connected to the first name and is an enlarged И.

Tekla Myslawchuk (1863-1915) is also buried in the Poplar Park cemetery - a cousin?


According to Harry’s granddaughters, all the Myslawchuks & Mislawchuks in Manitoba are related - the original immigrants were cousins.

The 1911 census for Manitoba, 22 Selkirk, 27 Tshp 15 in Range 6E, page 10 has:

            Hrycko Maslawciuk (Apr, 1873) m Katharina (Nov, 1874)

            Also, living with them was Iwan Werenicz (71) father, suggesting the wife’s maiden name was Werenicz.  I believe this is the above family.
