Carol Thompson Fredenburg sent me these photos on the Lanark County Genealogical Society Facebook page
I wonder if you can help me with any information on the Kazy family living in Smiths Falls in early 1900’s or before. My grandmother Helena Kazy was born there in 1925, as well as other family members. My great grandfather was George Kazy and my great grandmother was Annie Kazy.
The pics above are of my great grandparents, Annie Jones and George Kazy, he was arrested in 1937 for theft and assault, apparently escaped and turned himself in a few days later. *See below..
I did a quick look and all I could seem to find was information on what Carol said was George’s cousin—Albert and one Anna Kazy- The Almonte Gazette is down– so I could only search in newspapers.com– If anyone has any information please contact us. This is what I have found.
