Interesting report from researchers visiting the lower Volga villages including Muhlberg, Alexandertal, Rosenberg, Galka, Stephen, Holstein, Dreispitz, Dobrinka, and Schwab. Lots of family names if you have any ancestors from there.

My Aunt Mary Weitzel (husband David Meier) lived in Scherbakovka before being deported to Siberia in 1941. She had four children who she had to give away because she no longer could feed them. Her parents sent her relief packages, but it is not known if she received them. After a few letters, my grandparents heard no more from her, so it is doubtful she survived. She was the only one who stayed in Russia when the rest of the family emigrated to the US in 1912. They worried and wept for her and vowed to bring her and her children to the US, but there was nothing they could do.

Nearly everyone was deported unless they were elderly. Men and women went to different camps, so we don't know what happened to David either or where any of them went. We know Mary and the kids were on a train going north of Omsk.

I often wonder what happened to the four children and if we still have cousins in Russia.
