pictures of my Banat ancestors

Hello All,

I figured I would post some pics of my Banat ancestors - Sebastian Jung and his wife Katherine (nee Giel) - who came from Offsenitza to the USA in 1901 and then in December of 1903 settled at Lang, Saskatchewan, Canada where Sebastian homesteaded. Both are buried in the Lang Village Cemetery.

My grandfather’s family were Jungs too but from Sigmundfeld and Zichydorf.  My grandfather, alas, deserted my grandmother and 6 children,leaving them in St. Paul, Minnesota, and resurfaced in Canada in 1928.  The family lore was always that he “hid out” with Canadian relatives.  


I’m sure he never wanted to be found.  However, he didn’t reckon with Ancestry.Com which helped me trace him to a marriage certificate issued in Vancouver, BC in 1928.  


My grandmother did outlive him by 40 years (I found his Canadian death certificate from 1943) so I guess there is some justice in this world.

Dear Darrel,

are you sure about 1901?

The (meanwhile offline) family book for Offsenitza by Helmut Kaiser has a child still born there in 1902:

Hello Florian,

I got my year wrong and you are correct. In April of 1903 Sebastian Jung and his family left Offsenitza for Wyandotte, Michigan, USA; sailing on the ship "Neckar" from Bremen, Germany to Baltimore, Maryland. From May to December of 1903, the Jungs lived in Wyandotte wherein Sebastian did carpenter's work to support his family. In December of 1903 the Jungs left the USA and emigrated to Yellow Grass, District of Assiniboia, NWT (now Saskatchewan) where he got work on the railroad as a maintenance worker, "section hand", until he was later able to acquire his homestead at Lang, Saskatchewan. (Actually his farm was in that district which could be either counted as "Yellow Grass" or as "Lang" and in the history books of both communities, the same farm families and their stories show up.)
