At the South Peace Regional Archives Society Annual General Meeting on Saturday, April 2, Dr. Daryl White is speaking about post-war immigration in the Peace. When I spotted this article, it seemed to fit right in with that theme. It was also interesting to me because my mother shopped at Mr. DeGroot’s meat shop, so I knew him and his daughter Jennie. I certainly didn’t know anything about the events in Holland during the war. The other family mentioned in the article had ten children! I couldn’t find any further mention of them in the newspapers.
