Searching for Lauck Links from Russia!

Searching for Lauck Links from Russia!

Surnames: Arndt, Brill, Lauck, Schäfer, Schnell, Sauer, and more (A-Z)
My Grandfather's first wife, Christina Brill (b. 16.03.1876) Norka, was once married to Johann Georg Lauck. J.G. Lauck's birthdate was: Oct.9th, 1873. J.G. Lauck & Christina (nee Brill) were married 3.06.1897. I have a Pleve Lauck Chart, one of Dr. Pleve's earliest done, but the Lauck Chart ends in the mid 1860's! This does not give any information about J.G. Lauck, his parents, or what ever happened to him. Christina (Brill/Lauck) married my Grandfather, Johann Georg Sauer, b.05.10.1873 but year of marriage is unknown, and Christina's death date is unknown. Trying desperately to find information regarding Christina's first husband, J.G. Lauck! Any help is greatly appreciated. Also have extra Lauck charts, other Pleve Family name charts, Norka Maps, Platts etc. Please write if anyone has information! Donna Baxmeyer.

I'm not familiar with Pleve charts. What information do they have and how would I know if my Lauck line is on it?

Hi Kim;
Pleve charts are available at the Headquarters of AHSGR in Lincoln NE. Dr. Igor Pleve from Russia, along with the help from his wife Lüdmila and many University Students in Saratov Russia, compile the data found on families that were settlers of Colonies in Russia. These charts are sometimes breathtaking in their complexities, some are frustrating in their lack of information found and retrieved from the Russian Government. Many Pleve charts may take several years to compile with what information Dr. Pleve may already have, but some of his earlier charts start at the onset of the original family settler(s)eg., name of original settler, birth date, place of origin, Religious Denomination, the year he and family left Germany, Place of Departure, Year and Date of Arrival in Russia (usually near St. Petersburg) and the name of the ship that carried them. From there, their offspring are listed, and often show who they married, dates of births, deaths, and subsequent offspring, births, deaths, marriages. Most Pleve Charts begin in the mid 1740's, and end (if lucky) to 1905. Many, however, end in the mid 1860's due to lack of information released by the Russian Government at the time of chart compilation. New information received from AHSGR and Dr. Pleve stated, new documentation has been received with marriages up to 1910; and birth registrations up to 1919! This is wonderful news for all of us.
I've ordered an extended research for the Sauer and Brill lineage, and information about the Lauck family as they are directly linked to both lines of my family. When, and if, this information arrives, I'll be only too happy to share with all concerned. Please keep in contact with me, and if it's any consolation to you now, I do have a "Lauck Pleve Chart" on hand, but it ends sadly in the mid 1860's.
All the best, from a shirt-tail cousin, Donna B.
