I am researching the ancestors of Salamina Radke from Kulm, Russia.

She was born August 19, 1876 and immigrated to the United States.

How can I find her birth/baptism record to identify her parents?

    Hi, Karen, welcome to G&FH.SE! Questions that ask for "any information" or "any ancestors" are very broad and won't attract good answers. Please see our guidelines on What topics can I ask about here? and How Do I Ask a Good Question?. If you show us what research you've already done, we can give you better advice. – Jan Murphy Sep 17 '16 at 22:55
  • To try and make your question better fit our focussed Q&A format I am going to edit it. Please do not be offended that I am doing this but it should prevent it from being closed as too broad. This site works quite differently to a bulletin board or discussion forum. If I have not made it ask the question that you are most looking to have answered then you can easily edit it to make it do so, or ask another question. – PolyGeo Sep 18 '16 at 0:05

    Please summarize what records you have already searched. Salamina's obit is attached to her Findagrave entry [findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=65565527 ]. It names 2 half-sisters among her survivors -- have you researched them? Kulm is in Bessarabia -- have you researched the resources for that region and the Germans who lived there? She came to the USA at 2yrs - did she come with her parents? – bgwiehle Sep 18 '16 at 0:17
