In tracing a cousin of my wife I found that he had been abandoned as
a small child by his father after the death of his mother.
I found that this Jewish child was fostered by a Christian family
later came into the care of a Christian Mission and at the age of 17
was under the auspices of the Salvation Army sent to Canada in 1922
to work on farms. I found another Jewish boy was with him.

There was then a policy of repopulating Canada by orphaned youths
from the UK.
After a great deal of research I discovered that this cousin
married a Christian lady and died childless in Canada in 1987.
The other lad was named FINKELSTEIN arrived 1-Jul-1923
SS Montrose into Quebec
