Alina Wergo b 1930 perhaps Russia or Poland
« on: Saturday 25 May 19 10:31 BST (UK) »
The above is a follow up to my post about Charles E Read whose grandson married Alina in 1956 in Canada. It is believed that her mother escaped from Russia/Poland with 3 children including Alina but nothing can be found about her early life. The name Wergo could be a variation of Werygo as there was one such who entered Canada in 1913 aged 18 but it was a man with no family.

Bearing in mind RootsChat policy of no living people - Has the lady passed away now ?

Can you link your other post - so that we can get an over view ?

Hi Sandra,
Yes she passed away 16 Jan 2014 Toronto, York, Ontario.
The original topic was about Charles William Read and at https://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=811046.27 which you also did research on.

For background and to save people jumping back and forward thread to thread. This was the obituary for Alina Read......

https://www.legacy.com/obituaries/thestar/obituary.aspx?n=alina-read&pid=169486502

This obituary mentioned sister of the late Irene and Robert - did you follow those thru.??

We didn't include the Canadian Headstone Inscription for Alina on the other thread - anc gives no link to those now................

Alina Read - Cemetery Mount Pleasant+, Toronto York (incl. Toronto), Ontario, Canada
Notes: READ IN LOVING MEMORY OF 1922 JAMES 2009 HUSBAND AND FATHER 1930 ALINA WIFE AND MOTHER

James was in the police according to Canada Voters List of 1957. Later 1972 - Fairhill Crescent - Scarborough York Ontario. No children with them on either voters list.

There was a Robert Werygo on Canada Voters List 1968 - 13 Euclid Avenue - no others with him - unemployed.

That is super Sandra, gives a clue that Alina was possibly born in Russia too. As to the people mentioned in her obituary, apparently the family know little or nothing about Alina's background; it seems to have been kept a secret from them!
