It started in 1972 when I was in the Military, waiting for my security clearance. I was held back from the rest of the class when the security portion of training commenced. Weeks later, my School Sergeant Major informed me I was on the next course. He commented that being a White Russian was acceptable. I asked a few questions at that time of dad and a couple of uncles and didn t get much info. They all said we were German, and left it at that, except Richard, he said we were Polish from the Warsaw area (turns out he was right.) Now that I m older, and have some time on my hands having retired, I decided to start my quest. Thankfully technology has made things a little easier, however, family history research, especially in Eastern Europe is a labour intensive task. I have spent countless hours scouring microfilm, writing letters for government documents, and countless hours waiting for my dial up connection to produce an image on my computer of a record, only to find it is the wrong family. I have contacted our parents few living cousins and cousins of those cousins that although not related by blood had some knowledge of the family past. In all of this there have been some successes, and some failures. I am most pleased that I have located Grandfather Robert Litz s (Opa s) birth record. This feat only took about a month of microfilm hunting, a quick lesson in Russian Cyrillic, and the help of a wonderful man in the Ukraine on a genealogy list I belong to, to translate the document. Most of the stories I ve heard of Opa are from his time here in Canada. The uncles filled me in on what they believed to have been his past. Most of it cannot be proven, and a lot of it, is quite probable. Grandmother Hulda Kroening s (Oma s) history, although more of her family immigrated here, is vague, but her some of her brothers information is available. I have had to do considerable research and speculating to find the documentation to put together a history of her family and background. The stories I heard about Robert Litz's past and history came from Uncle Albert and Uncle Gordon, Cousin Ben Kraning, Ben s cousins Agatha Tolack (Gessie), Pat Gessie, Kurt Guttman, Ben s niece Nellie Fliegerts daughter Doreen, Maureen Hamilton, Mary Wasylenko Ferdinand's daughter and his great grand daughter Susan Izzard. Since I began this search, many of these informants have passed away, and I will miss the opportunity to converse with them further, but am eternally grateful that I was able to speak with them, hear their stories, and connect with the past.. The following pages are part of the history of the Litz Family that came to Canada from Russia in 1904, some of their ancestors and their descendants. litz family photos Click on Image to view albums Litz Siblings visitor Info for DNA Relaltives MT DNA T1a1Y DNA J1e (New Names J1c3 and J P58) Although I have only been able to find my great grandparents names, there are several names in various records that match with our Kroening/Litz/Zabel families from the same places. I cannot prove if they are related yet, but if you find that these names and places are part of your ancestry, and we are DNA cousins, there's a good probability that that is the connection.These names are: Kroening St Petersburg records Kroening EWZ Records Arndt, Wilhelmine Pawlinowka Bibrich Nedbajewka Donart, Pauline Toruvu Fliegert Pommern Gottschalk, Christian Shitomir Hinz Ostrone Grass, Susanna Gnadenthal Pautz Tscherwonoarmejsk/Pulin Hartmann, Luise Prussia/Heimthal Rosner Nowa Rudnja Kalbe, Elise Dubno Witzke Ostrosa/Ostrona?
