  •  Hyde Family (My paternal Grandfather): My Great-Great-Grandparents, James Hyde & Agnes Clark immigrated to Montreal from Glasgow, Scotland in 1853. My Great-Grandfather, John Hyde, was born-at-sea during that trip.
  • Boronow Family (My paternal Grandmother): My Great-Grandparents, Richard Boronow & Ida Meyer came to Montreal from Oppeln, Germany about 1885, a city near the eastern border with Poland. That city is now located in Poland, and is called Opole.
