Historic Sites of Manitoba: Belbas Family Monument (Municipality of Rossburn)

A monument in the Municipality of Rossburn commemorates members of the Belbas family who settled in this area. In 1901, Nichola and Tatsia Belbas, along with four of their children, immigrated from western Ukraine and settled on a homestead at SW34-21-25W. There, three more children were born. Fred and Anna Belbas began farming NE15-21-25W in 1927. Wasyl F. and Kay Belbas began farming S15-21-25W in 1952, dispersing it in 2002.
