Hi There,
I've searched high and low for info on this V.D.C.K and haven't
found much, except that all the records were lost in a fire many years ago.
I did do a search and found it was run by the " Catholic Church" to help German immigrants to get settled and it ran a farm where they went and worked basically away from other ethnic groups because of the "war" and them being German/German Hungarians ect....
Sankt Raphaels Verein & German Catholic Emigration to Canada.
If you go to: www.questia.com and put in for the Search:
German Catholics Manitoba, 1930's
and then check the box " Check within the results" you will get 13 results and as much history you can find for the V.D.C.K.
I hope this helps!
Teresa
