I'm looking for information on any of my GR ancestors as to their emigration/immigration to and from Russia.

My research to date: my maternal family immigrated from the Grosswerder, Jekaterinoslaw Russia area in 1909 to new homestead’s at or near Luseland Saskatchewan, Canada. They are:
-my grandparents are Valentine and Marie Zering (nee Scheffner (Schefner), also Zehring and maybe Zerring
-my great grandparents are Stephen Zehring and Helena Zehring (nee Sperling)
-my great great grandparents are Valentin and Maria Sperling (nee Scheck)

The Zering's probably emigrated to Russia around 1830, possibly from Metz, Lothrengren (Alsace-Lorraine) near Baden Germany. The others may have also emigrated from this area.

Any help would be appreciated.
