Granddaughter of Volga Germans.

I have been an avid genealogist for many years. It started with my grandfather showing me a family Bible to help me with a family tree project for school. There was no stopping me, and now I am considering the family historian and keeper of all the family's historical papers.

My father's side of the family had a wealth of genealogy information already pulled together, along with thousands of photographs, letters, and other documents that have been passed down to me. My great aunt left me boxes of information from her military days during World War II in London. My grandfather's family may be singularly responsible for kick-starting the photography industry back in the 1800s!

My mother's side of the family are Germans from Russia, and that information has been more difficult to track down. Through a strange twist, a letter addressed to my deceased great aunt was passed down to me, written in German. My husband and I translated it and discovered it was from my grandmother's nephew. He was trying to find out if any of his U.S. family members were still alive. He and his family had been relocated to Siberia in the 1940s. After the fall the the Berlin Wall, he and his wife, his children, and his grandchildren all immigrated to Germany, settling in Berlin. That began a series of letters between us where he gave me vital information about all of his family members. Later, we were able to facilitate a meeting between him and his Wisconsin cousin in Germany.

Related to my interest in my Volga German ancestry, I have started Space:Schott_Name_Study. Schott is the German equivalent of Scott, but the Schott ancestors hadn't been to England, Scotland, Wales or Ireland in centuries. Legend has it that the name originated with Catholic missionaries who made their way from Ireland to Scotland and then Germany. I would love to prove or disprove that legend. My Schott ancestors were originally Catholic but became Lutherans when they immigrated to Russia, although the reason behind that decision is not clear.

My interests are varied, but I have a special place in my heart for Germans from the Village of Grimm in Russia. I am also trying to track down information about my husband's family, originally from Sicily. I look forward to joining small projects here and contributing to the WikiTree community.

Julie, got your message of the Emery-2126 and Emery-2012 proposed merge. I am attempting to learn more about wiki tree so I am planning to do it myself. I selected merge, but all I got was a comment: Your approval for this merge has been recorded. I thought I would get the comparison page and select what to keep as I saw in the YouTube video, but that didn't happen. Not sure what happens next. Do I get notified when the approval is okayed? Do I get to help choose what info is kept? Thanks for your help, just trying to learn to navigate this site. Sorry if taking too long, just got new internet service and I should be able to work a bit faster now.
