Germans in Russia Colonies
Help!! I am having people that are going into our very detailed Germans in Russia colony records and changing the names to the current Russian cities. This is I believe the destruction of a very specific group of colonists that were from Germany and went to Russia to help them with land development. Helpers from your community are correcting all our records to reflect the Russian names from the Germans in Russia colony names. Please CORRECT this. The Germans in Russia history is extremely important to us descendants and this is affecting so many of us. If we want to visit Russia we will look up the village, if nothing else put in the Russian name as a sidebar! Many of our relatives are in our histories and books as from Kassel, Glueckstal Parish, Odessa, Russia - please make a change to your programs. We want our history not erased which is what the conversion is doing! The Germans in Russia colony maps would also be beneficial to our group. Please Please Please do not cancel out our history.
