Germans from Russia

My ancestors are Germanic and lived in the areas of either present
day Russia, or Ukraine. I have separated the website into geographic
areas to make viewing easier for you.

Volhynia
The area west-north-west of Zhitomir (west of Kiev), is one of the areas
within modern Ukraine where Germanic colonists lived. The eastern
part of this area was previously controlled and considered part
of Russia. The following are my ancestors that lived there. There are
also documents linked to the Volhynia page.

about 1832. They arrived from a place called either Mroga or Marjanow,
