Notes for Petr Tzwentarny: Petr Tzwentarny (Czwentarny) came to Canada alone, and apparently against the wishes of his family. At some time after his arrival in Montreal, his family apparently cabled him, offering to pay his way back home, but he refused and was disowned. There does not seem to have been any further contact with his family. Petr spoke Russian, and was supposed to have been "White" Russian or Byelorussian. His marriage certificate indicates that he was born in Husiatyn, Austria (in the region of Galicia, then part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, now part of Ukraine.) He belonged to the Russian Orthodox church and attended services on Easter and other major holidays. He never discussed religion, but is known to have read his Bible (now lost) in its entirety on more than one occasion. He also disdained any discussion of politics, but is anecdotally known to have disliked the views of "Bolsheviks" who would sometimes speak at social gatherings in Montreal. He met and married Anastasia Fedyshyn in Montreal. Their children were raised in the United Church of Canada, apparently because he disageed with the practices of the Orthodox and Ukrainian Protestant churches. Petr learned the trade of electrician, and worked for many years at Stelco (The Steel Company of Canada.) A long-time cigar smoker, he succumbed to carcinoma of the throat after a prolonged illness.
