NEED HELP WITH THIS SURNAME:

Walter Alexander Vincent DRAHOFF born 1907 where? , d 1975 Vancouver, BC,
Canada

Parents were:
William Wasyl DRAHOFF b abt 1880 Poland, Minsk, Russia, d 1919 Toronto,
Ontario, Canada
Wife
Frances Cecilia CZAPLICKA b abt 1891 Poland
(daughter of Stanley CZAPLICKA??)

1) Walter Alexander DRAHOFF - family & death record say he was born
Philadelphia, PA but no record found
Was he really born in Toronto??

DRAHOFF - not finding this name in records or searches. Family story says
grandfather, William W. Drahoff left Russia under dangerous situation and
he may have changed his name to DRAHOFF so that they would not find him. He
was only 39 years old when he died (left wife and 4 or 5 children).

Any suggestions about how to track this DRAHOFF, DREYHOFF, DREIHOFF etc from
Minsk, Russia.

Thanks,
Patti Waltman-Ingebretsen
