I have posted Linda Ducharme’s retelling of her Mother’s story, Linda’s own words describing the settling of the prairies, and the tribulations it brought. This tale tells of the life of Frank and Ettie Sklapsky and their children, and their life during that time. You can find the story under the “Family Info” menu item, and read this final section, termed appropriately “Linda’s Retelling”. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed preparing it for you.
As indicated before, each of these sections, and a great deal of additional family history, can also be read by acquiring Linda’s book “The Sklapsky Saga – The History of a Family”. If you would like a copy of the book please contact Linda, she has copies available. You can reach her at smoochsmom(at)outlook.com, just replace the (at) in the address with @. Please put “Sklapsky Saga” in the subject line.
You can also contact me and I can send you additional contact information.
If anyone has any photos they would share with me please let me know.
