Welcome to Besednoye ...

So far, we have found very little information about Besednoye. The little that we've found leads us believe that the community is historic.<1>

We've added Besednoye to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Besednoye - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Besednoye, please Contact Us.


Besednoye was settled circa 1899.

The origin (or the toponymy) of Besednoye: A Doukhobor<2> Community, belonging to the South Colony, where the refugees largely came from the Russian villages of Elizavetpol and Slavyanka.

Besednoye would have been located in the (306) and (639)<3> area codes.

Footnotes ...

<1>We use the term 'Historic' broadly and it generally means that the community no longer exists. However, it can also mean that the community might still exist, but was significantly larger or had a more 'official' existence in the past than it does now. Unfortunately our sources of data have proven to be unreliable. If you can provide us with more specific information about Besednoye, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
<2>The Doukhobors (or Doukhabours) are a Christian sect that were persecuted in the late 1800's by the Russian government and the Russian Orthodox Church. To avoid further persecution, many of the Doukhobors sought refuge in the Canadian Provinces of Alberta, British Columbia and in this case, Saskatchewan.Once in Canada, the Doukhobors continued their communal traditions by forming Colonies, with small villages (such as Besednoye) forming within each Colony.
<3>Area code (639) is an overlay for area code (306).
