Story of the Germans From Russia

Dr. Eric Schmaltz wrote an excellent series of articles to tell the story of his family history. Reprinted by the North Dakota State University Library are the newspaper articles titled "The John Schmaltz family of Emmons County: from Ukrainian Steppes to Dakota Prairies." The story told would be very similar to one told about the Merck family which made much the same journey.
