Immigration to Alberta
History
      Volga Germans from the villages of Dreispitz, Huck, Norka, Pobochnaya, and Shcherbakovka came to Alberta in the mid-1890s, settling in the Calgary area as well as west of Edmonton in Stony Plain and Glory Hills. Both areas attracted additional immigrants from the Volga in following years, for example, in the vicinity of Trochu, Beiseker, and Duffield. Volga Germans of the Reformed faith also settled in 1897 near Mellowdale in the Barrhead area.
