Volga German
Julie (Miller) Mangano is a Volga German.
Julie (Miller) Mangano has German Roots.

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.

You are most welcome and deserving. Not sure how to tackle DNA matches on Wiki. Do you have an example profile of how you sourced you are a DNA match to someone? I know we are still waiting on additional instructions given European privacy issue.

Hello Julie!

I am writing because of Anna Maria Wolf (Wolf-3103). My ggg-grandmother was also Anna Maria Wolf (born 1814 somehwere in the Volga region). Do you know who your Anna married? Mine married Nicolaus Hansen. We might be related if this is the same one.

Thanks for merging Amy Gardiner Tefft. In searching for a proper birth date, I looked at the book "The Gardiners of Narragansett " by Robinson. It is available on Google Books. It APPEARS as if Sarah Boss's mother was also an Amy Gardiner who married Peter? Boss. I'm not sure of the validity of the book and can't take the time to search it out, but it is a possibility that might show more connections. the Tefft and Gardiner families seem to have been thick as thieves, marrying back and forth, from the little I read in the book. Cheers,
