I'm an Oklahoman and found your article when I googled for Oklahoma Germans from Russia. My Great grandparents immigrated here from Russia in 1901. I have tried to look for information, but it is difficult. I do think it is true that the first generation immigrants were not open to talk about their life in Russia. I too couldn't figure out how come I was German but my great grandparents and most of their children were from Russia. The only real lead I have is my great grandfater's obituary that says he was born in Berlin, Russia and a census that says that he and his wifes mothers were natives to Germany. Thanks for the interesting article and if you do have room for an Oklahoman in your research I would be delighted. Thank You! Shari McNamar (Rothenberger)
