My father was born 1923 in Penza region of Russia.
His grandfather was Andreas, his father was Demetri and mother Tatania.
His 3 brothers went to war (WWII) and his family home was taken over and papa ended up in Eustonia Prison Camp in Novasibirsk.
Papa escaped and ended up in Schleissheim Displaced Persons Camp where he met my mother. They married in 1947 and I was first born in 1948, then my brother in 1950.
We got sponsorship by a Russian friend in NY, USA and we arrived 2/22/1952.
We have more family here in America now. I lost being able to speak German when my mother passed away and I never really learned Russian once coming to America at age 5.
How can we locate any Chevtaikin's in Europe?
