I am looking for information on my great grandmother. Phyllis was born on February 19, 1893 in Bessarabia, Russia. Her father was Yacob (Jack) Korfmann. Her mother was Elizabeth Christina. In 1913, Phyllis and her sister emmigrated to North America. I'm not sure where they arrived but they took a train to Melville, Saskatchewan to live with their brother Mattias. Mattias had a blacksmith shop in Melville.
