First I would like to thank Don MacGillivary for planting the idea of a family history into my head, also for his guidance, information, and interest in my research.

Most importantly, however, I wish to thank Dorothy Nalepa, Joe Melnick, Sonia Banfield, Ann Martinello, Paul Melnick, and my parents, Peter and Mary Melnick, for their help, cooperation, fine memory and interest in this research paper.

I would also like to thank Don MacLeod Personnel Officer, at the Sydney Steel Plant, for his cooperation and assistance. Also, I would like to thank Fr. Edward Yarema for his assistance and my sister, Darlene, for typing this report.

Finally, I would like to thank God for keeping the memories of my family members alive.
