1-Haberer  E-Mail

S-50: Tom and Jan Stangl wrote 8 July 1998:  "Just to pass on some good news.  We found the German church records of the Haberer family of Borodino, Bess and Neu-Beresina, Odessa, while we were in Germany in June.  Their POINT OF ORIGIN is the small village of ROHRBACH [now about seven hourse], which was in the extreme western edge of Wuerttemberg in 1803, when they emigrated to Alt-Ivesheim, Poland.  The church records are found in Schiltach, Baden, a town which is about 5 km northwest of Rohrbach.  As far as we know at this point, the records have never been microfilmed by LDS...."

I will begin by introducing myself. My name is Linda Herter of Golden Prairie, Sask., Canada. I am doing family history on my husband's side of the family and am having difficulty in tracing these people while in Russia. They were of German descent, their religion was Lutheran and they must have moved around quite a bit. My husband Larry's grandfather (DANIEL HAERTER / HERTER) immigrated from Russia sometime around 1910. I cannot find a passenger list for him, but I did find when his brother JACOB HAERTER / HERTER , wife PAULINE BITTNER and 5 children immigrated on May 27, 1909 and arrived at the Port of Quebec June 05, 1909. Jacob's d.o.b. was Sept. 1872 and birthplace is believed to be NEIMANCK, KRIM, RUSSIA. However, I have seen some microfiche and it states BORODINO as his birthplace. Also on this microfiche it mentions a PHILIPP d.o.b. 1874; JOHANNES d.o.b. 1876; ELISABETH d.o.b. 1878 all with BORODINO as the birthplace. The father of these children is listed as JACOB HARTER with an umelot above the a, and the mother is listed as FRIEDRIKA KRAMER with an umelot as well. There also was a GEORGE d.o.b. Aug. 16, 1880 as well as DANIEL d.o.b. Dec.25, 1889 but these are not found on this film. George's birthplace is listed as PRETORIA, SOUTH RUSSIA. There supposedly was another sister as well, maybe a MARY or MAGDELENA.

JACOB HARTER died in Russia and his wife FRIEDRIKA (KRAMER / KRAEMER) HARTER immigrated to Canada along with her son GEORGE and family, as well as FRIEDRIKA"S brother ANDREW( ANDREAS) KRAMER / KRAEMER and family in 1911. I cannot find passenger lists for any of these people in the 1909-1912 time frame. I do not know the exact d.o.b. for FRIEDRIKA but on a website did find a d.o.b. for a FRIEDRIKA / FREDERIKA KRAMER as May 08, 1851 in BORODINO. ANDREW (ANDREAS) KRAMER / KRAEMER d.o.b. May 30, 1874 was born in MATHILDENDORF, BESSARABIA. I have the death certificate of ANDREW KRAMER and it states that his father was JOHN KRAMER and his mother as FREDERIKA ?, it looks like MEELZ or NEELZ. I want to trace this family history as far back as I can.

George Dorscher gave me your email address ......

<< This is in reply to the last email:

Fredrica Meelz , Neelz, maybe even Meely or Neely. I had some info sent to me on a Johannes Kramer (Kraemer) and a Friederika Kroll (Knoll), (Knoell) and a list of 10 children. It states this; Friedrika Kramer b. May 08, 1951 Borodino; Andrew (Andreas) Kramer b. May 30, 1874 Mathildendorf, Bessarabia; Georg Kramer b. Sept. 29, 1868 Mathildendorf, Bess.; Barbara Kramer b. Mar 21, 1855 Teplitz; Katharina Kramer b. Mar 22, 1853 Borodino; Barbara Kramer b. Feb 07, 1858 Teplitz; Johannes Kraemer b. Feb 18, 1863 Mathildendorf; Margaretha Kraemer b. Aug 21, 1860 Borodino; Christina Kraemer b. Dec 21, 1870 Mathildendorf; Martin Kraemer B. Aug 11, 1850 Teplitz. The above mentioned Andrew Kramer  I believe could be the brother of Friedrika Herter (Kramer). He died on May 24, 1938 and is buried a few miles from where I am living. However, the maiden names of the mother aren't even similiar in spelling ( Meelz, Neelz, Meely, Neely. Kroll, Knoll, Knoell). Could it be coincidence that the birth and death dates of this Andrew Kramer are the same as the Andrew Kramer that I am concerned about? How would his death date be known when he died here in Sask.? I also was told that Friedrika Kramer was raised in the village of KULM, Bessarabia which just happens to be the same village that my mother-in-law's mother came from. My mother-in-law's mother's name was Wilhelmina Knopp (Knapp) and her father was Andrew (Andreas) Sailer (Seiler). Jacob Haerter (Herter) married Friedrika Kraemer (Kramer) and they had 6-7 children.

Jacob died in Russia, and some years later Friedrika, son Georg and his wife, and Friedrika's brother Andrew Kramer and family immigrated to Canada in 1911.

#1.... Microfiche states Jacob Haerter (Herter), son of Jacob Haerter and Friedrika Kraemer was born Sept 1872 in Borodino.He married Pauline Bittner in 1893 and one of their sons called Jacob was born April 30, 1900 in Neimanck, Krim, Russia. I stated before that the Jacob Haerter (Herter) b.Sept 1872 was born in Neimanck, Krim, Russia, I had the wrong "Jacob".

#2.Georg Haerter (Herter) b. Pretoria, S. Russia Canada in 1911 with his wife , mother, and mother's brother and his family.

#3.Daniel Haerter (Herter) b. Dec.25, 1889 in Krim (Crimea) ?, Russia. Mig. about 1910 to Canada. He supposedly came with his nephew ( son of Daniel's brother Johannes who had died). The reason for leaving the country could have been that they had to join the army and therefore would they even be on a ship's list?

#4. Philipp Haerter (Herter) b.Sept 28, 1874 and died as an infant, Borodino.

#5. Johannes Haerter(Herter) b.Oct 22, 1876 Borodino

#6. Elisabeth Haerter(Herter) b. May 10, 1878 Borodino

I believe that there was also another sister in this family. I hope that I haven't confused you . I am sorry about the mistake in the birthplace of the Jacob's. If still unclear email again. Thanls.

<< Hello Judy,

By coincidence I found your webpage with genealogical data on different family names on the internet. The reason I write to you is the family name Hauff which also is my family name. Also,  the oldest Hauff on your list (Johann Georg Hauff, born 1797 who migrated to Poland and then to Bessarabia) and his wife come from the little village of Haiterbach where also my ancestors came from. I also know that Johann Georg Hauff's ancestors and my ancestors are related, in fact they have the go back to the same ancestor.

By the way, nowadays there aren't any Hauffs in Haiterbach anymore.

It looks like most of Johann Georg Hauff's descendants live now in Canada and in the USA. My ancestor who also left Haiterbach in the mid 18th century did not move so far as your Johann Georg. He moved from Haiterbach to a village in the Northern Black Forest, and members of the family Hauff still reside there. Are you a direct descendant of Johann Georg Hauff or how are you related to him?

I found it very interesting to read the webpage and it would be nice to hear from you.

Many regards from Germany

Letters about Ella Hein:

Hein Family  Date: Sunday, November 6, 2005 8:23:51 PM From:

Dear Judy;

I accidently found your website and read two letters to you. One is a obit about my great-aunt Ella Weigum Hein, married to my grandfather's brother Benjamin "Bennie" Hein from Stockton, CA. Another was a letter from another of my grandfather's brother Walter and wife Marie, from Stockton-Lodi CA. I have been working on our families genealogy for sometime and have hit many brick walls. Are you related to us? I have only one contact from Canada, that has been very helpful, but he to seems to be having problems finding information as well. Martha Scherbenski is also mentioned and she is my grandfather's only sister from N.Dakota.

Here is an example:

E-mai, from Ingrid Reule ,, on Magdalena, nee Hein, Oster, Wagner:

"...Gilber Wanger was not a child to Magdalina Hein. The only son she had was with her first husband Edgar Walter Oster b. 11.06.1918 and +23.02.1925.  When Magdalina remarried she was in her early fifties and too old to have babies.  1948 her first husband died.  Leona told me that there were 3 children."

I checked the LDS film Nr.: 0071832, Culm- Landgemeinde for the Reule family and by accident I found the following birth entray and wrote it down for you:

* 04.08.1795 in Kammer, Michael Hein, parents: Heinrich Hein and Christine Schumacherin.

That is the Michael Hein who is mentioned in the Stumpp- book born in "Klammer".

<< Dear Judy,

I'm currently researching passenger lists to find Glueckstalers arriving in North America, so they can be included in the immigrants list for next year's Glueckstal Colonies Research Association Bicentennial publications.

When I find Glueckstalers on a ship, I always read the entire manifest and note any other GRs who traveled the same route and arrived the same date. Thus, I found the following entry and I'm wondering if you're interested.

S.S. Rhein, sailing from Bremen, 13 October 1910, arriving New York 25

October 1910. On board was Christof Hein, age 19, from Borodino,

Bessarabia, traveling to join his brother, Ludwig Hein, in Ashley, ND.

Father, Michael Hein, remained in Borodino, Bessarabia. He was 5'7" tall,

had blond hair and black(?) eyes. He declared that he was carrying $70.

Is this one of yours?

This information was sent to me by Marie on February 15, 2000.

In response to your letter concerning the Hein relation. To begin with Jacob Hein, Walts father; he had seven brothers namely:

1. Sam Hein - Canada

2. Carl Hein - Canada

3. Gottfried Hein - Canada

4. Benjamin Hein - Canada

5. Dan Hein - North Dakota

6. Rheinhold Hein - Canada

7. Leonard Hein - remained in Russia, he had a physical disability.

8. Walt Hein - she did not say where in the line he comes

9. A sister - no name yet.

Walter knows very little of his ancestry, his mother died when Walt was about 10 years old. Dad (Jacob) remarried and accepted three of her children to the family, so there were seven brothers and one sister plus the three children of the wife.

Walt and his step-brother left for California at the age of 16 with very little money, in 1936, so they were on their own from then on. It was during the depression, dust storms, no crops, no jobs. Later in 1937-38 , his folks moved to California.

Three brothers and his sister stayed in Dakota, sister Martha is the only one still there. The other three passed away.

Walts dad spoke very little of his ancestory. The Heins in Canada may know more, altho all of Dad Heins brothers have all passed away, but all their children still reside there, expect one the we know of. We traveled up ther twice for Hein family reunions. Some of the cousins there are well educated and may know more of their geneology. I will give you some addresses of the Canadian relatives:

1. Emil Hein .....

2. Albert Hein ....

3. Ed and Vi ....

4. Bill and Elsie Link .....

Walt is 81 and I am 80 years. We are in fairly good health, we traveled a great deal with our RV, but have slowed down and still go on tour trips with various tour companies. We traveled to N.Dakota every three years to visit Martha and family. She may have some geneology information. Her address is

Martha Scherbenski ......

We have quite a number of chapters of the American Historical Society of Germans from Russia; Address 632 D. St. Lincoln, Neb 68502. Here in California you may want to contact them for more information on your quest. The Mormon Church in SLC, Utah have geneology information also.

I hope we have been helpful. Those older parents were so closed mouthed they never told their children anything. When Dad Hein married the second time he just brought her home with the three children, and announced this is your stepmother. He never told the younger ones when another baby was due. They were so, is the word, backwards? in that respect. Thats the way it was back then, they surely kept us in ignorance (so much for that).

Walt was in the army; overseas 38 months in the South Pacific. He saw a lot of action. We got married and started out with zero. We have two college educated children a boy and a girl with excellent jobs and five grandchildren, who are great kids. Hope you can read this scribbling. Good luck, let us know if we are related.

Sincerely, the Heins, Walt and Marie

According to the information on your homepage, we ought to have the same ancestors?

I would be pleased to exchange dates and information with you. Unfortunately, I hardly have any information about Georg Hein and would like to know how his family went from Germany to Poland, Besserabia and back.

<< Hallo,

....Unfortunately, we do not have facilities for genealogical research as extensive as those in the US. Therefore, I very much have to rely on the internet regarding my search about Bessarabia. I was really impressed by your homepage; it is so packed with information, just great!

Could you please send me the data about the Hein family in a ged format? In this way, I would be able to compare it with my data quite easily and, if necessary, to complete it. I would be pleased to supply you with my Hein file in this format. I just have to extract it from my family file first. I hope I will be able to do it this week.

I'm sorry to say that I don't have any clue about Konrad Hein's parents myself. Maybe you have got some information for me so I can work on that question.

Konrad Hein's family lived in Borodino and then in Jakobstal before being resettled to Germany. My father (born 1938) emigrated with his siblings and parents to Cannstatt (Germany) in approx. 1945. My mother was born in Swabia. Unfortunately, my father and his parents are not alive anymore, so I don't have any further information.

(I've been researching for my Hein ancestors for about four years and I also do research about Hoffnungstal (Müller-Reinhardt family) and Germany.

On your homepage, you often refer to a pedigree??/genealogical table???; how could I gain insight?

Best regards,


P.S.: My niece currently translates my emails as my command of the English language is quite outmoded. Do you know any German?

Letter dated 23 Aug 2004 from Natalia,, on family of Alexander Hein of Heinrichstal/Zaporoshje-Prischib:

Dear Ms Remmick-Hubert

My name is Natalia Andrews-Hay and today is the first I have come across your website which was absolutely fascinating. I have been trying to research my Hein family on my fathers side for some time but as I have very little information it is proving rather difficult. From what I can gather my father Alexander Hein was born in Heinrichstahl near the Dnepr River on 31 October 1912. He was the youngest son of Heinrich Hein who agian was the younger brother of Jakob and Christian Hein. As my father spoke very little about his family I know of only a few other family members scattered across the globe but have not been able to obtain information about my grandmothers exact name or where the family may have come from in Germany. Since my father passed away 25 years ago finding other relatives is complicated. From your website I see that your family come from Borodino which is in Bessarabia and therefore a completely different area of the Ukraine how ever I would be very appreciative if you could suggest some avenues to follow in order to find where our family came from. I have second cousins in Germany and they are willing to help in searching documents but we are not sure where to start. Reading Russian is not a problem as I am a simultaneous interpreter and use Russian all the time however it is finding where records might be kept that is the problem. I have tried to access the LDS records of the St Petersburg Lutheran Archives I am not sure of exactly which church district I need to look for. Also I live in Sydney, Australia so it takes a while to obtain films from Utah.

   Looking forward to hearing from you

Natalia  Andrews-Hay

Note:  Check out the Odessa Library under Collections.  Go to full search and type in Heinrichstal.  This will pull up records of those from Heinrichstal listed in the war records.

Subject: David Hein Sr. obituary  clipping from the  no. 45 Prairie Pixayune South Dakota


Sunday afternoon  marked the day close of the life of another of the pioneer settlers of this county when the spirit of David Hein left its earthly abode to answer  the call of Him who wisely  and will direct all things. As we are informed Mr. Hein was among the earliest settlers in this county coming about the year 1879 to take up a homestead. He was prominent in social and political circles and served this county in the official capacity of sheriff for nearly 18 years.For the passed five or six years he has been leading a more or less retired life resting from his arduous and active labors of his Lord. There was probably not another who was so generally known over the county and whose friends extend over such a large area.

Mr. Hein was born in Krim, Russia on Jan. 22, 1857. At the age of 20 he came to this country and settled near Yankton S.D,where he was engaged in the pursuit of farming.

After a little over a year residence in that community he moved to this county where he took up a homestead a short distance northwest of Artas where a postoffice later established bore his name. some twenty years ago he took up his residence in Mound City where he conducted a merchantile enterprice together his duties as sheriff.About seven years ago he moved to Herreid and conducted a hotel for a short period. Since then he has been living at intervals at Faith So. Dak. in Canada and in the vicinity of Glenham until he moved on the Frank Jilek farm south west of here.For a number of years Mr. Hein has been affected with stomach ailments and their complications and which the immediate cause. of his death

He had been growing weak for some time but not until Saturday had he been confined to his bed and from which his soul departed to its reward Sunday afternoon, April,17 at the age of 64 years,2 months and 26 days.

On April 28,1879 he was united in marriage to Miss Elizabeth Reimer at Yankton. His faithfull spouse together with two sons and six daughters survive to mourn his loss.

Funeral services were conducted at the late home Tuseday afternoon and the remains accompanied by a large escort to their last resting place in the Mound City Cemetery.   




Walther Hein email


David Hein and Elizaberth Riemer were married in Russia and lived there for some time before coming to South Dakota in 1878. They then moved to Campbell County in 1886 and fianally homesteaded near Artas which became the Hein post office. David and Elizabeth were post master and assistant postmaster. Then they moved to Mound City where Mr. Hein served as county sheriff for many years. The Heins also ran the hotel and the general store. Mr. Hein died in 1921, and his wife in 1928.

Hildenbrand Families  [S-90]

Letter:  29 April 1999: Hello Judy, >Time for me to pester you again. I have the naturalization papers of Jacob HILDENBRAND. He was born 2 April 1858 in Borodino. He settled in McIntosh County in ND and died there in June 1932.

I am trying to locate the names of his parents ...

A cousin of my grandma remembers there being an Uncle Jake and that he was buried near the farm in Lehr ND.

I know that he had at least two wives - an Elizabeth HUMMEL whom I believe passed away in S. Russia and Helena BALZER who came with him and three children to the United States.

..This OBIT can be found in an 1932 issue of Der StaatsAnzeiger... like June or July issue...

Any other suggestions on finding the name of his parents. I'm trying to prove that his father Johannes Hildenbrand was married to Christina WIEDMAIER and then later married Barbara WIEDMAIER, my great great grandmother.

On his naturalization records it does show him residing last in Friedensfeld, S. Russia, -this is where my great grand father was born.

Thanks -Kathy

The ship Havel left Bremen and arrived on 2 May 1895 in NY Harbor. This is the family that I said had different dates on their naturalization papers. Out of the four naturalization papers only one said they arrived in May 1895. One said May 1894 and the other two said April 1895. I thought they were all on different ships. Jay sent me the entire manifest for this ship, but I've only pulled the names of German-Russians.

0405. HILDEBRANDT, Barbara F 53y M Russia <<This is my great great grandmother Barbara Wiedmaier Hildebrandt, born in Alexanderhilf -she arrived in McIntosh County,ND in 1895, married Christoph Koepplin in Dec 1906 - rumored to have passed away around Napoleon, ND -would love to know what happened to her. In 1910 she was on the census in Lehr, McIntosh Co, ND. Her naturalization papers said she arrived in April 1895.

0406. HILDEBRANDT, Carl M 20y S Russia <<Carl, Born in Friedensfeld, S. Russiais the identical twin brother to Friedrick (below). He first married Maria BAUMANN, she passed away between 1914-1916, he then married Karoline SCHILLING STROBEL, the widow of Gottlieb STROBEL. The lived in McIntosh County, ND. Carl passed away in 1935. Karoline married his twin in 1941 after Fred lost his wife. Naturalization papers say he arrived in the US in May 1894.

0407. HILDEBRANDT, Friedrick M 20y S Russia <<<This is my great grandfather. I would have loved to have talked with this man, he passed away in 1951 before I was born. Fred first lived in Kulm and then later worked on his brother Israel's farm, north of Wishek, McIntosh Co. ND. Fred was first married to Eva SCHAFFER and they had five children. The youngest is Amelia Hildenbrand DOERR. She is living in a nursing home in Dimondale, MI and will be 95 years old in July. Eva passed away in April 1907 and Fred married my great grandmother, Pauline SCHOCK. They had six children. Pauline passed away in Feb 1941 and Fred married his brother's widow in Sept 1941. Karoline's daughters told their mom to marry him because "they all liked him, he looked like their dad, sounded like him too" so they married :) Naturalization papers said he arrived in May 1895.

0343. Fasser, Barbara F 26y M Russia <<<nee Hildebrandt, sister of Karl and Fred, born in Friedensfeld. Two daughters, Lydia (AMAN) and Ella (LIEBELT) are the only remaining siblings out of 11 children. The Faszer's naturalization papers said they arrived in April 1895. In 1910 they were found living in the Rosenthal Township area of McIntosh Co, ND.

0344. Fasser, Jakob M 3y S Russia <<Married Pauline BAUMANN

0346. Fasser, Paulina F 4m S Russia <<<<married John J. HILDENBRAND and lived in the Lodi, CA area...John J. Hildenbrand died in 1961 in San Joaquin County, parents were Hildenbrand/Koenig....Possibly Johannes HILDENBRAND and Katharina KOENIG <<<they arrived on the SS Augusta Victoria in May 1899.

Can anyone confirm that the parents are Johannes and Katharina?

0403. Thicle, Ludwig M 26y M Russia <<<

0404. Hein, Gottfried M 26y M Russia <<<These two were close on the ship with Barbara Hildebrandt and her two sons Fred and Carl. Is there a connection? I do have searched the ODL for Hildebrandt info and could be the son of a Karl HEIN and Katharina HILDEBRANDT - I'm not sure if Katharina is connected to my Hildebrandt family though they were in the Borodino area before moving on to Friedensfeld.

Early life in America:

Mr. Hildebrandt filed his homestead in Ashley, June 14, 1889. Mr. Hildebrandt purchased a complete outfit for $400 in Eureka from a man named Piefer. For this he received a yoke of oxen, plow, wagon, food, supplies and other farm equipment. He purchased 3 hens and a rooster from a Mr. Weist (no. of Eureka) which gave him a start in chickens. He bought his first pig a year later from Mr. John Root (so. of Lehr)

Mr. Hildebrandt said he broke 20 A. of land in August, 1889, but it was not planted until the next spring. The second year he planted flax but harvested a poor crop, receiving only 50 bu. which he sold in Eureka of $1.50 per bu. Mr. Hildebrandt informed me that not until 1891 did he have a really good crop.

During the first summer, Mr. Hildebrandt stated he went to Eureka 14 times. The trip to Eureka could be made with oxen in one day. He bought his first team of horses and set of harnessing in 1891, for which he gave in return, 2 oxen and $200.

A house made of sandstone (about 18' by 20') which was built in 1892 is still standing and is used by the family as a summer kitchen. The sandstone used in building this house was obtained about 1/2 mi. distant from the farm buildings. The house is still in excellent condition.

HESS   FAMILY  - letters from Flossie Libra [S-12]

MEMORIES OF BORODINO /  BESSARABIA , as told to me   [Flossie Libera]by Regine Hein, Oct. 1982

Regine's parents, Samuel Hess and Katherine Ehni,  were considered wee-to-do by Boroino standards.  her fathers land holdings were larger than most.  Besides what he recieved from his father he had boguth his brother Johannes share. The brother had disappeared while herding sheep and was never found.  He also had added land from a Filler who had borrowed money from him.  Samuel Hess was able to give each of his children 15 desatins  (1 dessatine + 2 1/1 acres). He had nine children, Regine, the 7th.

She recalled her mother did not mend their clothes but gave them away when worn.  She did not want her children wearing patched clothes, a practice quite different from the necessity of many others.  At certain times the Hess family traveled to the larger market of Tarutino to sell and to buy.

Emil Regner, now of Didsbury Alberta, " [Canada], "described the Hess home as  "a big white house on the corner".  It is shown on the last map of Boroino avaiable as lot 331.  The Regner home was down the adjoining side street.  Both were on the south side of the village, so designated from the church in the center.

The village, verylong and narrow,  and divided by the Luthern Church......."

Regine Hein's (Biography)

(as learned from her by Flossie Libra - 1982)

---In Part----

Regine (Hess) Hein was born in Borodino, Bessarabia, Russia on July 167, 1911, one of nine living children of Samuel Hess and Katherine Ehni.  Samuel Hess's parents were Jakob Hess and Dorothea Haberer. Jakob in turn was the son of Adam Hess and Barbara Springling the first generation to Bessarabia from Worms ind. Pfalz.  Dorothea Haberer, daughter of Andreas haberer and Friedericka Moesche, also the first to Bessarabia from Wurtemberg.  Both villages are now in West Germany.

These relate to my own family as follows:  My mother's mother was also a child of Jacob Hess and Barbara Springling, thus she and Regine's father were brother and sister. My mother and Regine were first cousins though at the time of Regine's birth my mother had been in the United States 13 years , since 1898. My grandmother Tetz, her mother, had, also, left Borodino, having remarried (Arthur Mauch) and moved to Kloestitz.

Following the first World War Bessarabia became part of Romania. Regine would have been about seven, thus her schooling and memories are from the Romanian period.  This, too, was a decided advantage after World War II.  During it Hitler had repartitinated the German settlers under an agreement with Stalin. Regine's parents plus brothers and sisters families eventually found their way to West Germany.  German settlers on the east side of the Dniester River had remained under Russia and were resettled mainly in Siberia.

Only Regine's older brother, Gottlieb, his wife Lydia Hederley and children came to Canada, but earlier (1 927).  Regine emigrated with them.  She was 17.  In telling of her departure she said her mother cried many tears making it hard for her to leave. But Regine felt it held the possibility of a better future.  She also felt another sister was more favored at home making such conflict between them.

The journey was begun from Borodino by wagon, leaving after lunch to arrive in nearby Bereina in time for the evening train. (Wether this rail line was there in my mother's time is unknown, since she traveled to Odessa to board a train.).

Apparently this was was a slow local stopping at every station. They traveled all night and the next day to get to Kischineff (Kishinev). It's route was north and then east through Bendery (Bender) stopping there quite awhile. They would look across the Dniester River into Russian territory.

With Kischineff on the railroads main line the speed of travel picked up, although they were once side tracked quite awhile to let another train pass that was carrying the Romanian King. He was quite sick at the time and died not long after.

Their route took them through several European cities, including Budapest, Hungary where they stayed two days, eventually arriving in Paris in the evening.  Here another physical, plus inoculations, were required before taking a small boat that connected to their ship.

I believed they arrived in Canada at Montreal but not certain. It was June of 1927 when they came to Hanna, Alberta," [Canada], "to begin their new life..."

"During the first summer Regine worked for a farm woman whose husband was away a good deal of the time drilling wells. By fall she was cooking on a cook wagon for harvest hands along with other girls. It was on the farm of her future husband's brother. She was marred in November.   A month after her marriage she received a letter from her Aunt in Turtle Lake, North Dakota asking her to go to live with her. She was a sister of her mother's named Schock, and Regine often wondered if her life would have been quite different if she had not married so soon.  She felt she would probably have gone to North Dakota.

...Regine and Karl Hein were married November 26, 1927 in the Lutheran parsonage in Coronation, Alberta. Karl Hein's first wife had died six months previously, leaving a 1 1/2 year daughter and  Olga, who  became Regine's step-daughter and was loved as her own. She was three the following January.

Regine and karl farmed 3 miles north of Spondin, Alberta until 1932.  Many Borodino and Bessarabian families were already in the area. My mother's sister Emilie Lehman and family were near the Hein farm  (Lydia and Regine's daughter Freeda use to write to each other after the Heins moved away). A mile south of Lehmans was Moetz (Mrs. Fredericka Schock was sister to the wife of Regine's cousin, Emile Hess -- the oldest son of her uncle Andreas, the one who cast spells.). A mile from Moetz were the Regners, Emil's parents.

Depression prices and almost no crops during the drought years forced Regina and Karl to sell their stock and leave.... Going into the 'bush'  of the Peace River country they paid $10 for a homestead of 160 acres near Heinz Creek, living there for 13 years....

....1947 .  They bought a farm at Onoway, Alberta, very close to the west side of Edmonton.  The last two children were born at Onoway....

....Karl died in 1970 but Regine still lives in the same house....."  [1982].

It is a good time for memories, as well as making more of them."

The End.

Letter #1

from:  Armin Bruege

23 Aug 2016

Dear Judy,

First of all, thank you very much for all the detailed work you do and did in the past!  Thanks to your help I was able to obtain a lot of information about my ancestors and am able to forward this to my children as well.

I am direct descendant of

Adam Hess b. 1781 Eich / north of Worms, Palatinate m. Barbara Springling in 1805.

And I also was wondering why there are Hess from Aich / Nuertingen (Wuerttemberg) and Eich (Worms / Palatinate).  So I started research and was lucky that the city of EIch / Worms started an "emigration project".  (http//

Letter #2

26 Aug 2016

Dear Judy,

Thanks for your response.  I am happy if you add my e-mail as

As a side note:  "Hess" and "Wallewein" is my mothers side from Borodino.  My fathers side is also from Bessarabia, from "Tarutino" with the names "Bruege" and "Schlenker".

With kind regards / Met vriendelijke groet Mit freundlichen Gruessen



Heydt Family Letters

From Joerg Fischer, e-mail:

I come from Germany and I'm interested in searching for ancestors. A part  of my family was born in south russia and I read in the internet that you  have maybe further informations about the village Borodino in Bessarabia.

The following Person lived in Borodino, but I think only for a short time.  I couldn't found him and his family in the church records. And so I want to  ask you what you know about: Jakob Heydt (one daughter is Elisabetha, born  1822 in Karlsruhe/ Molotschna/ Taurien). He lived in Borodino in the time  around 1842. If you also know, where I can get informations about the village Karlsruhe/ Taurien, please contact me.

I hope you can help me and I hope also, that you understand me strange  English. I learned it in school and used it very seldom.

I'm looking forward to your answer.

Best wishes: Joerg Fischer

Hoeffel Family Letters

Letter#2:  22 Feb 1999 from Doug :

Yes... you can certainly use my name and e-mail for your site for HOEFFEL's. I am very interested in the HOEFFEL's in France and Germany.

You can also include the following: I am a direct descendant of Charles HOEFFEL born 12-8-1780 and died 12-9-1852 in Lutzelbourg, Lorraine, France. His sons Michael and Edward left France for Defiance Co., OH.

I am a descendant of Michael. I have also found a reference to a Magistrate Philipp Jacob HOEFFEL, chief forester and master of the hounds, from Bouxwiller, Alsace, Germany (now France) in around 1648 who may or may not be related to Charles HOEFFEL in Lutzelbourg. I'm trying to see if the 2 HOEFFEL's are related.

Another interesting tid bit... currently there is a Daniel HOEFFEL who is a minister in Alsace, France. That is like being a govenor of a state in the US. Anyways, I e-mailed him and his daughter, Dominique, responded. The response is as follows:

------------Letter to Doug


Thanks for your message. I was very happy to get your mail. I am extremely interested in our family's genealogy. We are the descendants of the Hoeffels in Bouxwiller, and of Tim Hoeffel. We had a meeting with 200 members of the Hoeffel family from the whole world in May 1998. I'll try to find some more stuff for you in our family's attic.

This was Dominique, Daniel's daughter.

Sincerely Yours.

... please feel free to contact me or forward my e-mail to nyone interested in HOEFFEL's.
