What happened after the umsiedlung?

Surnames: Reinartz, Rötscher, Holmberg, von Wentzer
Thanks to the work of Fred, and the Estonian Biographical Centre, I have many answers to what happened to my Baltic German ancestors. My ancestors all resided in Estonia. Many of them left as Germans in 1939 as part of the umsiedlung. The most common surnames/nachnamen for my relatives are Reinartz, Rötscher, Holmberg, and von Wentzer. My questions are as follows:
1. Is the list of Germans who left available online anywhere?
2. There must be some sort of documentation about what happened to these people after their second forced resettlement in 1945 or so. Where would I find this information?

Looking forward to hearing from anyone who can help with this.
