Notes for Otto Gustav FLATH

Attended Lutheran Church and school in Jarosty.

Conscripted into the Russian army after that part of Poland was taken over by Russia (1909). He was the valet of a 2nd in command of a regiment, so he didn’t have to actually fight.

Otto worked at a garment factory in Poland, and in his spare time took an apprenticeship in butchering and meat processing.

Moved to Canada in May 6,1927 to Quebec city on the Minnedosa.

Became a naturalized Canadian citizen on Feb. 27, 1935 (his middle name is spelled “Gustaf” on the list).

Ran a butcher shop in Hafford from around 1933 until 1940. Moved to a farm 5 miles south of Hafford in 1940. They kept the farm, but moved into Radisson in 1950. After Clara passed away, he and Bob continued farming until Otto’s retirement, and he then stayed in Radisson until 1975, when he moved to the Langham Holiday Home.
