About this webinar

Ethnic Germans went to Ukraine for two major reasons: For economic opportunities and for the chance to practice their chosen religions. The Lutherans, Baptists and Mennonites who migrated east often followed different paths, but there are common factors in their history as well. This session reviews some of the most important sources that apply to all, as well as sources that are specific to each denomination.

    I know it can’t be easy to research records in places like Poland, Ukraine, and Germany, but Dave Obee does a great job of presenting this information to the genealogy community. I enjoyed this immensely.

    So much detailed information and explanations of these groups of people! Push&Pull indeed! Dave always provides as much information as he has, including his own collections of books and resources used from boots on the ground!
