Saskatchewan Mennonite Cemetery Finding Aid
Location of 9 Private Burial Sites
1. Family plot at Blumenheim NW 29-40-3 W 3rd. Going east along Blumenheim’s main street and crossing Hague grid road are 2 unmarked graves of Children. Mrs. Abram Janzen recalls seeing the mounds when she was still a young girl. She remembers (Deaf) Jacob Peters living adjacent to the site but doesn’t remember the family name of the children.
2. According to Abram Janzen, there are a few burial plots on the north side of the south access road to Neuanlage.
