I am looking for ways anyone will have to find more family members too. My family the Anrep’s came over into New York little by little over the course of 20 years. This has made finding them kind of difficult.
So, any great advices that can help will be wonderful.
My family was from the very cold north of Ural and then traveled in 1893 to then not so big a city named Rostov On Don, which now is very big.
Then during the 1950’s and 1960’s many of my family came to the United States for more opportunities. the reason it’s so hard to find good documents on them doing this is because this was still the time of the U.S.S.R. So, they paid big money to do this so many documents did not exists as the payments were under the table. This is the normal way to get things done.
So, it has made finding them very hard. I’m not sure if maybe they changed their names even to be able to make the journey.
I have found 4 of my relatives so far who came over but I have heard there may be as many as 10.
Good day, Svetlana
