MARY J. WIEBE was my mother. She was born January 12, 1910 near Rosthern, Saskatchewan, Canada of parents who were of the Old Colony MENNONITE faith. Her father, Johan M. WIEBE immigrated from Chortitza Colony, South Russia in 1875, and her mother, Maria QUIRING was born near Winkler, Manitoba, Canada.
She married my father RYBURN R. UPDIKE June 1st, 1929 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, and they farmed in the White Fox/Love area until they moved into Nipawin in 1967. I have Dad's ancestry on my RootsWeb WorldConnect UPDIKE GENEALOGY site listed below.
Please consider this a personal invitation to visit my PHOTO ALBUMS AT WEBSHOTS (see the link below). Many albums are arranged by surname. If anyone has any photos of my grandparents JOHN M. WIEBE & MARIA QUIRING, PLEASE CONTACT ME. I am also trying to locate photos of both of their parents: (AARON M. WIEBE & MARIA MARTENS) and (KLAAS K. QUIRING & ELIZABETH FEHR), as I have only one of each couple. Thank you!
THE MAIN REASON I HAVE MY FAMILY FILES ON THE INTERNET IS TO SHARE THEM WITH YOU! Enjoy, and please email me if we connect!
