    Notes 
    • Albert Emil Fausak (*1913) was best man at Albert and Emma's wedding when he was age 16; he had gone to Germany with his parents. He took a number of photographs of the family at that time.

      --------------------------------------------------------------------

      (following taken from undated printed material that was apparently an Evansburg town history)

      Albert Fausak was born in Janovka, Prussia, December 10, 1901, the second youngest son of a family of 10 children. His family were farmers and Albert learned the trade well.

      Albert and Emma married in Gros Schlafken, Germany in Aug 1928.

      In the spring of 1929, they immigrated to Canada with Albert's brother Robert and his wife Olga, and their three sons, Eddie, Alfred (Fritz) and Kurt. The parting from the family and the trip over on the boat was especially hard on Emma since it was only a few months before her first baby was to be born.

      They stayed at Bruderheim where some German acquaitances were living. Harold was born on June 29. While at Bruderheim, Albert and Emma had to sleep in a granary which they had to share with a family of gophers.

      After they lost all their possessions in a fire, the group decided to strike out on their own. They bought N.E. 33-54-7-5 from Mr. Dollman and they all farmed together for several years. In 1935 Betty was born. In 1938 Albert and Emma bought S.E. 4-55-7-5 from Ewald Grapentin and moved over to farm on their own. They all worked very hard to make a living.

      In 1945 they were blessed with a second daughter Hildegard (Hilda).

      They increased their holdings to four quarters and acquired a full line of power machinery.

      Whereas Harold and Betty had to walk to Part Court School, Hilda was able to ride on Justus Otto's bus to Evansburg. Hilda completed her high school in Evansburg and moved to Edmonton to do secretarial work. Harold took over the farming operation when Albert and Emma retired and moved into Evansburg. Albert died in 1974 and is buried in the Evansburg Cemetery.

    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.

    "This happened in Przasnyz on the 26th of January/8th of February 1901 at 12:00 in the afternoon. Ludwig Fausak, 53 years old, farmer from Janowko appeared and in the presence of witnesses Michael Kupp(?), 30 years old, a farmer from Wola Wodzynska and Efraim Hein, 50 years old, farmer from Janowko, presented to us a child of the male sex stating that he was born in Janowko on the 16th/29th of December 1900 at 9:00 in the evening from his lawful wife Louise born Hein, 43 years old. To this child at holy baptism performed on this day was given the name Albert. The godparents were the first witness and Ewa Kissling. This document, late because of child's father's family circumstances, was read aloud to all illiterate witnesses and signed by us alone. Pastor Oscar Ernst."
