They were joined in 1897 by sever al families from Zichydorf: Kleckner, Binzenberger, Kaine, Rist, Ortmann, Donauer, Leitner, and Bartole. Later, other families from Zichydorf and nearby villages arrived in the area: Stoeber, Wingert, Eisler, Dornstauder, Niedermayer, Roeslein, and Eisler. This book tells of the settlement and development of the area and has several references to individual Zichydorfers. This book is found in the Saskatchwan local histories section of the library.
