Lemberg, Saskatchewan, Canada

Reason for doing this web page is preserving Small Town Saskatchewan for all in the world to see, And also preserving my family history, for generations after me.

They were Baptists, who immigrated from the Volhynia area of Russia in 1889, His Original Homestead was located at: W 1/4 OF SECTION #14, TOWNSHIP 20, RANGE 8 W2
