Abstract

Settlements started near the main rivers before World War I and accelerated with Group Settlements of the 1920s. However many Group settlers abandoned their land before 1940. The rate of persistence of families on each block varied considerably. Geographical expansion of holdings among successive generations of founding families reflects more general processes. Settlers have gradually created a continuously settled landscape in this once densely forested area
