Surnames with Confirmed Pre-Volga Origins
The purpose of the "Surnames with Confirmed Pre-Volga Origins" page on the Volga Germans web site is to share research that has been done to document exactly where a specific family came from prior to emigrating to Russia. The list does not include every Volga German surname, only those that have a proven pre-Volga origin location. If you know of research documenting a specific family's pre-Volga origin location, please let us know so we can add it to the web site.
