Role of Women in Doukhobor Culture?
Questions and Answers, Comments — February 15, 2011
Question 39: I am a Athabasca University student and researching a paper on Doukhobor women, their role in the Doukhobor culture. I am focusing on the Blaine Lake area [of Saskatchewan, Canada]. My mother Hazel Vereschagin (deceased) was from Blaine Lake....I am wondering if you would recommend anything specific for me to take a look at. Thank you for your consideration.

Answer by Koozma J. Tarasoff:
Thank you for introducing yourself and your interesting project on Doukhobor women and their role in Doukhobor culture with a focus on the Blaine Lake area. I understand that your Mom died in 1976 when you were 10 years old. Your Aunt Angeline Wuhrer (nee Vereschagin) went to the Saskatoon Technical Collegiate Institute at the time I was there in the 1950s. She now resides in a Care Home in North Vancouver, British Columbia.
As for sources, I suggest the following as a start:
The rest is for you to discover.
