ZELLER - The Family of Lytle and Winnie Kistner Yost
ZELLER - The Family of Lytle and Winnie Kistner Yost
This is the story of a 20th century pioneer family in Saskatchewan, Canada. I have included this although this family is not directly related to me simply because it is such a clear story of the struggle that one family went through pioneering in virgin territory.

I believe that Lytle and Winnie's story, while different in specifics, is probably very representative of what our ancestors found when they ventured forth from the settled areas of the country into the newly opened territories, states and provinces.
