Cornelius C. and Eliesabeth Penner family photograph collection

  • CA MAO Digital 185
  • Sammlung
  • 1924-1949

Cornelius C. Penner and Eliesabeth "Liese" (Baergen) Penner were both born in south Russia and immigrated to Canada in 1924. In 1925, he purchased the east half of Lot 7, Concession 3 in the Township of Eilber. Thus the family joined the Mennonite settlement of Reesor, Ontario. The couple had 7 children, 5 of whom survived infancy. In 1927, their son Cornelius Jr. (Neil) secured the adjoining lot (west half of Lot 7, Con. 3). Cornelius Sr. died in 1939; Eliesabeth and her children settled in the Niagara area beginning in 1943. The fonds consists of photographs of family and community life in Reesor, as well as some photographs of the immigration journey in 1924 undertaken by Neufeld relatives.

Arthur W. Slagel fonds (photograph collection)

  • CA MHC 665
  • Sammlung
  • 1920-1924

This fonds contains 276 photographs taken and received by Arthur W. Slagel during his 3-year assignment with Mennonite Central Committee from 1920-1923. The collection has photos of the relief work in Russia showing various aspects of the work including workers, headquarters, storage, distribution, seeded and distributed crops, transportation, buildings and homes. The photos were taken in locations such as Chortitza, Alexandrosk, Schoenwiese, Rosenthal, Halbstadt, Gnadenfeld, Ohrloff, Nicopol, and Sagradowka. There are images of the 1923 emigration group from Schoenwiese leaving for Canada. There are general scenic photos of the Dnieper rapids, the Kremlin and other sites in Moscow. Some photographs were likely given to Slagel from Mennonite workers in Russia, such as the Solomon Ediger family, the Peter Nikkel family, the Johann Janzen family, the Ohrloff teachers and others. And, finally there are photos of travels taken in England, Holland, Belgium, Switzerland, Italy, Germany, Austria, Poland, Egypt, Palestine and Syria.
