Guardianship Committee of Foreign Settlers in Southern Russia: Odessa Archives Fund 6 fonds

  • Fonds
  • 1799-1877; filmed 2000-2010

This fonds contains the records of the Russian government department that was responsible for all issues related to the foreign settlers in Russia. The department was charged to ensure the success of the settlers. Of high interest to family historian are the vital records of births, marriages and deaths for the Chortitza Mennonite Colony for much of 1801 and 1802. There are also lists of children vaccinated (see 1809 and 1814 lists). A fair number of files relate to criminal cases or other situations where legal documents were generated due to some type of conflict in the colonies. Other files contain primarily statistical information about the colonies. The files also provide considerable information about how the Office of Guardianship governed the colonies.
The content is organized chronologically with file descriptions listed in eight (8) separate finding aids called inventories (i.e. Inventories no. 1, 1a, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8).
See "Fund 6 Overview chart" linked with this description and "Finding Aid Links" to inventory file lists and indexes.

Guardianship Committee of Foreign Settlers in Southern Russia

John Neufeld and Ron Hunsicker on CJOB with Peter Warren

Marriage breakdown was the subject of the three-hour morning call-in program over one of Winnipeg's most listened-to radio stations. Radio station CJOB's Action Line invited John Neufeld (left), pastor of the First Mennonite church, and Ron Hunsicker (right), pastor of the Charleswood congregation, to appear on the Peter Warren show. They discussed marriage breakdown and counseling. The station's switchboard was stacked with calls throughout the morning.
The original invitation came after Hunsicker and Neufeld went to CJOB on behalf of the city's Mennonite ministerial association to buy time for the three-minute CHOICE spots. The station did not have time available, but expressed interest in having the two pastors join Peter Warren for a full morning's go at the marriage theme.
