The Old Colonists - Following Jesus

FROM THIS ISSUE

In 1875 the Reinländer Gemeinde was formed in the West Reserve, Manitoba, Canada, under the leadership of Ältester Johann Wiebe (1837- 1905), Rosengart, formerly of the Fürstenlandt Colony, South Russia (see Preservings, No. 14, pages 49-72). The new community consisted of immigrants from the Chortitza “old” Colony and its daughter settlements in the Black Sea region who were, therefore, known as “AltKolonier” or “Old Colonists”.
