Kulm, N. Dak. Jubilee Book

This book can, now, be found on line:


Maggie Rosman, Chairman wrote in the Foreword:  

"A view of Kulm's history during the past sixty-five years has brought back memories to the large group of its citizens who have been taking a look at its past."  Maggie Rosman went on to talk about the information  for the book and her appreciation to the Kulm Lions Club who sponsored this book and to the many people who helped.  One other person was mentioned and that was Miss Margaret Rose.  

Now,  I'd like to thank everyone and hope to add to the genealogy of the families who are of German-Russian descent and add my knowledge and links so you, the reader, can add to your own knowledge of what it means to be a German-Russian-American.  

My ancestors who migrated here in the early years of the 1910s were my maternal grandparents Ludwig and Christina, nee Hein, Schweikert (Schweigert).  It was my grandmother Christina who wrote letters back to Borodino, Bess. S. Russia  to her parents, Karl and Katrina, nee Henke, Schweikert that convinced them to migrate to North Dakota 1911.  My great grandfather, Karl, in turn wrote to his father, Jacob Schweikert and his second wife Elisabeth (nee Hager), who were living in Muminby / Crimea {Krim] and asked them to migrate  to North Dakota about 1912.  

Ludwig and Christina Hein would not stay on their farm near Kulm long but venture out and soon Ludwig became a rancher in Montana.  Karl and Katrina Schweikert would live out their lives in Kulm [they did live in Ashely for a time].  Jacob Schweikert would migr. to Idaho and then his widow would migr. to Lodi, CA.  Ludwig and Christina Hein would retire from ranching they moved to Lodi, CA.

I [at the age of six months] and  my parents,  Lillian, nee Hein, and Edwin Remmick, would move from Sidney, MT to Lodi, CA where I would grow up and graduated from Lodi Union High School in 1960.

I have never been to Kulm, ND.  And,  I'm looking forward to learning a great deal more about Kulm.
