Admin History/Bio
Sarah Goldstick was married to Wolf Goldstick. Their daughter Celia married Mr. Louis Goodman and they had two daughters, Dina and Rose. Dina only lived until the age of two. The surviving child, Rose was born in Chicago. She married Mac Snider during the 1920s and they had two children, Jordon and Susan, who were born in 1929 and 1935 respectively. Her husband died at a young age in March 1935, leaving Rose a young widow.
Scope and Content
This family portrait includes four generations of Goldsticks: Sarah Goldstick (far right), Celia Goodman (left), Rose Snider ( back) and her son Jordon in front. The photograph was taken in Toronto at Simpson Brothers Studio on Yonge Street, five years before Sarah passed away in 1936.
Notes
The file list provides the name Gordon for the child. However, Betty's family record book indicates that Rose's son's name was Jordon Sigmund Harry Snider. Therefore Jordon is used as the name for the child.

Physical Description
1 film reel (ca. 60 mins.) : b&w, si. : 16 mm : 16fps
Date
1929-[194-?]
Scope and Content
Accession consists of a 16mm b&w, silent film reprinted (probably in the 1980s) on modern 16mm sound stock from the original group of individual short silent 16mm films shot by Sol Sky from 1929 through the late 1940s. Among the shots are scenes of: Sol Sky in front of his South Porcupine store Sky’s Specialty Shop; Kovetsky’s Ltd. Men’s Store in South Porcupine; downtown main-street in South Porcupine; family members on skis in winter; a very early propeller-pushed “ski doo”; a July 1, 1929 Dominion Day parade in South Porcupine; a family visit to a city; and a winter scene of a bi-plane on a frozen lake. Many country-side and lake-shore family outings are also included. (Note: a complete shot-list has been created for the contents of this film.)
Administrative History
Sol Sky was born in Russia in 1887 and his family arrived in Canada in 1906. He move to South Porcupine in 1911, and was married to Fanny Rosenbloom in 1912. They were among the earliest Jewish merchants to move to South Porcupine, Ontario, where a gold-mining boom was just beginning. Owner of a successful store, he was able to purchase one of the first 16mm silent Kodak home movie cameras, which he used to film family, friends, other residents, businesses and events during the following two decades. The family lived in South Porcupine until 1960.
