This photo is of the Gerhard Neufeld family. The background of this photo is interesting with its view of the forest. See #6 for a picture of Gerhard when he was younger. On this photo he could be 7 years old. His sister Katja (Katie) stands behind him. Imprinted on the bottom right hand corner of this photo is the date 1904.
In 1924 when Olga Enns was 7 years old, her family emigrated to Canada. But she was not allowed to come to Canada in July with the rest of her family. Her parents asked a different Neufeld family to look after 7 year old Olga and Gerhard Neufeld who by this time was in his late teens and an orphan. Gerhard and Olga arrived in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada in September 1924. Gerhard later married a daughter of Bishop (Ältester) Janzen of Waterloo, Ontario, Canada.
