Louis, hope you will enter some of the information you have on the new Volga German Project pages:


Although the Odessa region is technically not Volga German, I would welcome adding that region to our discussions.  Their experiences were very similar to those settlers in the Volga.

Thanks for your interest in WikiTree and for asking your question here on G2G.

Have you seen this page yet:  http://www.wikitree.com/genealogy/ZIEGLER  ?  It may help you to make some Ziegler connections here at WikiTree.  You can search the "Johannes" first names there - you'll find several - though none are your great-grandfather, it may be they are otherwise related.

I wish you good hunting and hope this helps,
