BACKGROUND GENEALOGY


Tiegenhagen

.. As previously mentioned, 193 families [1020 people] left Prussia in 1803, stopping in the Chortiza Colony over the winter. A further 162 families [953 people] arrived from Prussia in the spring of 1804 ...

The first pioneers in 1804 founded a line of nine villages from Halbstadt to Altonau along the eastern bank of the Molochnay River. In 1805 another eight villages were laid out east of the original group, along the tributaries which flowed into the Molochnaya. In 1806 Fuerstenau was added to the northern group to complete the first burst of settlement at a total of 18 villages...

The first groups to arrive, founding the first 19 villages from 1804 to 1811 were all Flemish Mennonites. More Flemish families arrived from 1818 onward ...

Repaired with clear tape on the front and cloth tape and play card in the back for reinforcement.
