Georg Stremel

26Georg Stremel was born in Josefstal on 3 February 1899 (OS), to Johannes Stremel and Anna Marie Arnold.

Georg married Katherine Burgart on 12 Feb 1918, also in Josefstal.

This photograph, courtesy of the Stremel family, would seem to show Georg’s mother, Anna Marie Arnold Stremel. Georg’s father died in 1912. Also on the photograph would be Georg’s sister, Anna Margareta (born 1880), who had marrried Johann Adam Dieser.

Georg came to Canada in 1924, after he escaped Russia and lived for about 2 years in a refugee camp in Frankfurt/Oder.

He got his wife and son out as well, and they came to Canada shortly after.

The rest of the Stremel family would stay in Russia, and were deported to Siberia and labour camps in 1941.

For the file I have added Georg’s Birth/Baptism record, as well as the passenger list record for /March/April 1924, documenting his arrival on the SS Montrose.
