Peter Schmidt (1870ish-?) and Anna-Maria Kambeitz (1872-1939)

Peter and Anna-Maria Schmidt were my great-grandparents, the parents of my father's father.

I got this photo from my Aunt this weekend (their grand-daughter).  Both Peter Schmidt and Anna-Maria Kambeitz were born in Kandel, Kuts., Russia, and I know that they came to Canada but I don't know when.  All of their children came to Canada, or were born in Canada.  Their children were Paul, George, John, Mary Eva, Regina, Tony, Peter, Joe, Sebastian, and Andreas.  Paul was my grandfather.

Anna-Maria was the daughter of George Kambeitz and Marie-Anna Bertram. Peter Schmidt was the son of Johann Schmidt.
