One of the earliest was in the Weyburn Gen Web region at Candiac around 1896, Also at the turn of the century, Polish homesteaders came to the Saskatoon Gen Web Region near Alvena, Tarnopol and Fish Creek. Nestled within Ukranaian colonies of the Kamsack Gen Web area in the early 1900s were Dobrowdy (later Buchanan), Kowalowka (Later named Tiny), Bobolynci (Later Fosston), Rama, Mikado and Kuroki.

The Hapsburg Dynasty 1278 - 1918 ruled this central European country of Austria On censeii and passenger lists residents may be classified as Austrian, though they may be Croatian, Czech, German, Italian, Ukraninan, Polish, Romanian, Slovene or Slovak.

From 1867-1918, there was an Austro-Hungarian Monarchy. Likewise, immigrants classed as 'Austrian' may include Germans, Bohemians, Moravians, Slovaks, Ruthenians, Slovenes, Servians, Croats, Roumanians, and Magyars. In 1938, Northern Austria became a part of Germany. As there were many border differences, this was the reason why immigrants registered their country of origin as Austrian. There were German speaking immigrants from Poland, Austria, Czechoslovakia, and Germany. Czech, Slovak, Polish, and Wendish are all "West Slavic" languages.1 Records from Poland may also include areas now part of Ukraine, Lithuania, Belarus.
