Family History: My father Viktor Chevtaikin was born 11/12/1923 in NovaSibirsk. His grandfather was Andreas, his father was Demetri and mother Tatania. His 3 brothers Ivan, Vasile and Kuzma went to war (WWII) and his family home was taken over by the Nazis and papa ended up in Eustonia Prison Camp. Papa escaped and ended up in Gleisgarben Displaced Persons Camp where he met my mother Erna Waltraup Koenig born11/5/1925 in Goldarp. They married in 1947 and I was first born in 1948, Ursula Viktoria Chevtaikin, then my brother Andreas in 1950. We got sponsorship by a Russian friend in NY, USA and we arrived 2/22/1952. We have more family here in America now. I lost being able to speak German when my mother passed away and I never really learned Russian once coming to America at age 5. Please let us know how we can locate any family still in Europe. Thank you for any information you can provide. Tags
