Rezensionen zu: Auswanderungen aus dem Odenwaldkreis *** alle Bände ***


It was with a great deal of excitement that I found Band 3 of Ella Giegs Auswanderungen aus dem Odenwaldkreis was back in print! I had spent months in late 2012 trying to buy all five of Giegs volumes and could never find Band 3. Even when I went to Germany in February 2013, a copy for sale could not be located. And this is a new edition for 2014, with a Forward by Ms. Gieg, as well as new statistical data for emigrants from the Odenwald for Bände 1-5.

The reason that Band 3 is of such interest to me is that my fathers parents were Volga Germans, and Band 3 has 102 pages of front matter on the lives of emigrants from Odenwald in their newly adopted lands, a good deal of which is devoted to Germans who went to Russia. This front matter is before the listing of emigrants from Brensbach, Fränkisch-Crumbach and Reichelsheim Grensprenz Valley. 28 pages deal with Germans who went to Russia, and there are several photographs from the Bundesarchiv Koblenz of German life in Russia. So I learned that the Bundesarchiv in Koblenz is another source of information in Germany on the Germans in Russia.

The price of this volume is very reasonable and I had it in hand less than a week after it was ordered.

Bravo on the new edition of Band 3, of Ella Giegs Auswanderungen aus dem Odenwaldkreis!
