Ukrainian Homesteaders in North Dakota
John and Anna Baranko Circa 1906
The first immigrants to south central and western North Dakota, the Wilton and Belfield-Fairfield areas, respectively, were attracted by the Homestead Act of 1867. Immigrants to the Kief area of North Dakota moved there due to religious persecution overseas. Their early histories are recorded in many books held in the Marie Halun Bloch Library at UCI.
