Petersdorf, a village in the Nikolaipol district of the province of Ekaterinoslav (now Dnipropetrovsk), founded about 1833, was the seat of a Mennonite Brethren Church congregation, which was a subsidiary of the Einlage congregation. Petersdorf was later called Petershivka or Nadeshdovka. About 35 years later the Mennonite settlement of Yazykovo was established in the same district.
