By David G. Rempel; Edited by Cornelia Rempel Carlson

In this vivid and engaging study, David Rempel combines his first-hand account of life in Russian Mennonite settlements during the landmark period of 1900-1920, with a rich portrait of six generations of his ancestral family from the foundation of the first colony - the Khortitsa Settlement - in 1789 to the country's cataclysmic civil war.
Born in 1899 in the Mennonite village of Nieder Khortitsa on the Dnieper River, the author witnessed the upheaval of the next decades: the 1905 revolution, the quasi-stability wrought from Stolypin reforms, World War I and the threat of property expropriation and exile, the 1917 Revolution, and the Civil War during which he endured the full horrors of the Makhnovshchina - the terror of occupation of his village and home by the bandit horde led by Nestor Makhno - and the typhus epidemic left in their wake.
Published posthumously, this book offers a penetrating view of one of Tsarist and early Soviet Russia's smallest, yet most dynamic, ethno-religious minorities.
The late David G. Rempel received his Ph.D. in history from Stanford University. He was professor of history at the College of San Mateo in California, from 1934 until his retirement in 1964.

David G Rempel, with Cornelia Rempel Carlson, A Mennonite Family in Tsarist Russia and the Soviet Union: 1789-1923 (Toronto, Buffalo, London: University of Toronto Press, 2002), cloth, 352 pp. $65.00

These were the ancestors of the author through the marriage of Gerhard and his distantly related first wife Maria, both of them Rempels, and then through a second marriage for Gerhard, to Maria Pauls, who became the mother of David.
The family included three children (Neta, Gerhard and Johann) from the first mother, Maria Rempel, and six children (an unnamed son, Heinrich, Maria, Heinrich, David and Jacob) from the second mother, Maria Pauls (p. 280).
David and his siblings were close, and seldom expressed an awareness that some of them had the earlier mother and some the later one.
Dr. David G. Rempel (1899-1992) studied at Bluffton College (BA), University of Wisconsin (MA) and then completed his PhD in 1933 at Stanford University in California.With the exception of three years in US military service during WWII, Dr. Rempel taught at the College of San Mateo (at the outset a Junior College) from 1934 till his retirement in 1964.
