    Notes 
    • Edward's birth registration is in the 1919 Nasielsk parish record (no. 18, p. __, LDS film 1,197, 635). Witnesses were Ludwik Sommerfeld (age 37) and Efraim Hein (age 70). Godmother was Natalia Sommerfeld (almost certainly Robert's Fausak's sister Natalia who was married to Ludwig Sommerfeld).

      Edward drowned in the Pembina River near Evansburg Canada as a teenager in 1936. The whole community would go to the river on Sundays for picnics, and on that fateful Sunday, Eddie and two friends drowned. The families of the boys were all there. Eddie's family never went to the river again.

    This photograph was taken in Hamburg, Germany on 11 April 1929 as a memento of the emigrant’s impending departure for North America. The caption in German may read:

    We come and we go,
    It could not be otherwise,
    If we meet again,
    God alone knows.
    We have found that,
    It is what we know as love,
    This keeps us connected,
    If sea and land separates us!

    In memory of my trip on North German Lloyd. Bremen. 1929

    On the right side of the photo are Robert Fausak (1896-1980) standing behind his wife Olga nee Teise (1895-1989), and Albert Fausak (1901-1974) standing next to his recent bride Emma nee Jakobus (1904-1997). The three boys on the right are Robert and Olga’s sons (l. to r.) Edward Fausak (1919-1936), Alfred Leonard Fausak (1923-2-13), and Kurt Carl Fausak (1925-1998).

    The older man standing at the left rear, the young woman on the left, and the boy seated left on the floor are Leonhard Meyn at age 42, his 17 year old daughter Herta, and his 9 year old son Max.

    The tall man standing and the seated young woman holding the boy are Johann (John) Rewitz at age 26, his wife Maria (Mary) Rewitz at age 24, and their son Horst Rewitz at age 2.

    All of the families were traveling together, and all are believed to have lived nearby one another near Grenzhof and Candien, East Prussia. Leonhard Meyn, who apparently resided in Bruderheim AB Canada was the immigration sponsor for the two Fausak families and for the Rewitz family.
    Fausak family; c 1924; probably in Muschaken, East Prussia.

    Standing (l. to r.): Albert Fausak, Natalie nee Fausak Sommerfeld, Ludwig Sommerfeld, Olga nee Teise Fausak, and Emma Fausak. Seated are Emil Fausak, Louise nee Hein Fausak, and Robert Fausak. The boy is Edward Fausak, son of Robert and Olga. Emil Fausak lived in the US by this time; he visited his mother in December 1923 and Dec 1924, and then returned again for Albert's marriage to Emma Jakobus in 1928. Emil's son Albert Emil Fausak, at the age of 16, was best man in his uncle Albert's wedding.
