We have recently had information from the "International Tracing Service" of one of my Fathers Uncles who was not seen since being taken from the families village of "Taubuwka" near Zhytomyia in 1941. From this we have confirmation of my Fathers Grandmothers name "Helene Hammerschmidt". We then found on "The Black Sea German Research" site her name/DOB 25/12/1898 & village details again along with all her childrens. This site had lists of people who had Germanic ancestory but were living in the Ukraine/Russia. They were listed with this EWZ50 code & a set of numbers.
Why did they have these codes listed against their details?
Is it true these files hold a vast amount of information about your family??
Is it hard to get hold of a copy??
I am chuffed that we finally have our Grandmothers full DOB along with her brothers. It listed under the same Village two more families with the women having the LAHERA surname. Added to our family is now the surname TALAROWSKI & DEMUTH.
