Looking to obtain information (birth records,marriage
etc.) on my maternal grandparents and their families.
Grandfather: JACOB MARTENS b.20 Dec.1889
Grandmother: MARIA NEUFELD b.13 Jan.1890
Aunt: ELVIRA MARTENS b.26 July 1913
Uncle: HELMUT MARTENS b.23 Oct.1918
Entire family (along with many aunts,uncles,cousins etc.)
emigrated from the town of ALEXANDROVSK to
ROSTHERN,SASKATCHEWAN,CANADA aboard the passenger ship
BRUTON on 4 Aug.1923.
Earlier in November 1918 they had to flee to ALEXANDROVSK
from ROSENHOF(ROZANOV ? not sure of spelling) when my
Uncle Helmut was only 2 weeks old. I think this is the
town they originated from.
My greatgrandmother: ANNA (WEISS) MARTENS also made the
trip to Canada.
