Appendix II Copies of Two Village Agreements

Village of Neuenburg

  1. We, the undersigned Mennonites of the Colony Neuenburg, who are twenty owners comprising the village commune, hereby bind ourselves to place our land, which we have received from the government in fee simple, in communal as we are used to have it in Russia.
  2. But because the laws of the land here are such that each must enter his homestead separately, we agree to select by lot, but also agree to retain it in communal use.
  3. It is agreed that each one may sell his homestead (i.e. the twentieth portion of the five sections which belong to the village) providing that a majority of the village owners agree, that is, two-thirds of the village owners.
