Memrik Colony

A little farther north from the Molotschna colony in Ukraine was another Mennonite colony known as Memrik. Johann Cornies of Germany provided some old photographs from this colony.  Jakob Cornies (no. 346 in the document Nachkommen von Martin Cornies version 20120925) and Gerhard Cornies (no. 345) are included in these photographs.  There is also an Ekatharina Kornis listed in the names.  She is the adopted daughter of Heinrich Cornies (no. 153 in the document Nachkommen von Martin Cornies version 20130523).  The "Cornies" surname is spelled "Kornis" in the names below the photographs.  An old map of this colony shows the general area of the Memrik colony and the town of Orlov (also Orloff and Bahndorf) in that colony.
