UK Evacuees Adopted by Canadians in Calgary
- To whom it may concern.
In early February, members of the list were asked about an enquiry by
Jessica Mann a World War II Evacuee who with her brother lived with a Dr. &
Mrs. John Palmer. Several of our members were very helpful in providing
Jessica with information.
I was able through my friend Rod Macdonald, who owns the house previously
owned by the Palmers, to locate Palmer's daughter Joan Gordon, who lives in
I have received a letter from Joan. She said that Jessica and her brother
David were adopted by the Palmers. Joan asked me to contact members of the
AFHS to see if anyone knows of any other Family in Calgary who adopted
Evacuees. As Jessica is writing a history about Evacuees she may be
interested in other Evacuees eleswhere in Canada.
If anyone has such information, please provide me such information by
e-mail or letter.
