RE: Just wandering
I don't speak either Ukrainian or Russian, Sikora, but I have friends who do. They've been working on translating KGB and other Soviet records since they were released about 10 years ago, to find info about what happened to German-Russians who remained in Ukraine after the Bolshevik revolution. fascinating work! If you're interested in German-Russian geneology, I recommend looking into the German-Russian Heritage SOciety ( Great organization, with a terrific searchable database of all sorts of records related to German-Russian history, culture, and people.

RE: Добрый вечер...
Добрый вечер, Анна! Спасибо, что написали и что заглянули на мою страничку.

Как я нашел Вас, и почему поставил в "друзья" - честно говоря, уже и не помню, но, видимо, была в тот момент причина. Ведь участников на этом сайте - миллионы, а чем-то зацепила ваша страничка.

Почему я выбрал именно этот сайт, когда решил сделать "мемориальное кладбище" своих родственников? Ведь и на русскоязычных ресурсах - много похожего.

Но мне приглянулся именно этот. Тем более мои предки по линии мамы - латыши, и по моим сведениям кто-то из них когда-то уехал в Америку. Вдруг найдутся новые, неизвестные мне родственники.

Мое главное увлечение - составление своей родословной. Занимаюсь этим уже четвертый год. По латышской линии - составил все, что было возможно найти в архивах Латвии,включая и электронные. Получилось внушительное "древо" - больше 300 имен, первая запись - 1747 года:-)))) С Россией (папа -русский, хотя это с натяжкой, так как мама его была литовкой) - трудности. Папе сейчас 93 года и он практически НИЧЕГО не знает о своих родителях, которых не помнит, так как его мама умерла рано, его отец потом женился второй раз, а папа в 14 лет начал самостоятельную жизнь С большим трудом я кое-как нашел родственников отца - его сводные братья и сестры, многие из которых уже умерли, а оставшиеся - не очень-то хотят общаться. Живут в Полтаве, там тяжело. Интернета нет, а письма писать для них - дорого. Я просил разыскать могилу моего деда (т.е. отца моего папы), они даже не знают, где он похоронен. Прислали только свидетельство о смерти от 1946 года и одну-единственную фотографию родителей моего отца: я ее отреставрировал и отвез папе. Видели бы, как он рыдал, когда впервые за свою долгую жизнь увидел своих родителей!!!!!!

Вот будет чуть посвободней летом - сам собираюсь поехать в Полтаву и заняться поисками на месте.

В Латвии бываю очень часто, получил вид на жительство, так как мама была латышка и в Латвии есть программа репатриации - возвращение латышей на свою историческую родину. Думаю через пару лет уехать из России в Латвию навсегда. Тянет!!!!! Видимо, говорит генетическая память.

Извините, что так долго- и только про себя.
С уважением,

RE: Charlie Hildebrandt
Dear Sikora, Yes, I read the very short story about what happened to Charlie & his brothers & sisters at the "" website. It is a site dedicated to the remembrance of murdered children. And, in Find a Grave, it says on his mother Hannah's memorial page that "he died from complications." He died at 23. Horrifically, his mother killed him along with his brothers & sisters. I don't remember how she did it, but, I think it was by poisoning. Charlie died years later from complications due to what his mother did to him. Very, very sad! I'm sorry I don't have any more information to pass on to you, except for one more thing. You may find out more about Charlie in I think his mother Hannah Hildebrandt is listed there & the entire story. I hope I was helpful. God bless, Lynnie

Thank You from Texas
Anna, I appreciate the time that you took to visit the memorial of my dear departed wife, Phyllis Elaine Fulton. Thank you so much and thank you also for the flower you left for her. She will have been gone for two years in just two more days. She is so very missed. Do you mind if I ask you how you happened to find her memorial? There have been so very few people from outside the United States who have seen the memorial.

RE: Russia
Yes, I can, but I am not as fluent as I speak Swedish at home, and English at school.
Yes, agreed, I have not met one Russian or even one Swedish here yet!

Welcome t FAG
Find A Grave is a great site for us to leave memories for our loved one. It is a site where we can add names, dates and places of birth and death of people we knew and some we didn't know personally, but the information will be there to help other family members and researchers find those dates and places for their research. I am so very thankful for it, as it has helped me greatly.

Thank you for visiting my husband's site and leaving flowers. I truly appreciate it. I am curious as to how you found it though, since we live worlds apart.

If you read my bio, you know that I don't get to go visit cemeteries and take request for pictures any longer. I enjoyed being able to assist those requesting pictures in our area and looking up obituaries for researchers.

Best Wishes,
Hazel LeBlanc Find A Grave member #46629142
