The original purpose of this work (started in 1987 and first presented in 1994) was to visually and coherently bring together the relationships of the descendants of five German-Ukrainian siblings who came to Canada in the early 1900s from Russia. For the most part these descendants settled and are settled in Saskatchewan.

A history is not attempted. That is left for others. However, it is hoped that this work will make the younger members of the family aware of their genealogy and inspire them to carry on this project.
