    Those damn Russians...

    I'd like to know if there's anyone else who has this problem:

    I'm basically a mutt. I have Norwegian, English, French-Canadian (so I'm not ENTIRELY white), Slovenian, and German lineage. On my dad's side, my ancestors were almost all German (specifically, Prussian). I can trace my father's side of the family back to my great-great-great grandfather who immigrated here, but I don't know anything about the people who came before him because the a-holes in the Russian Army during World War II were so pissed at the Germans that they decided to bulldoze all the graves and destroy all the records when they advanced over German lands. Thus, anyone with roots in East Germany is screwed because the Russians were so P.O.'d that, when they were running out of Nazis to kill, they decided to screw over some Germans who were already dead.

    Has this happened to any of you guys?

    Sad results of war. Of course the Germans were no Angels in warfare either. Actually next to the Japanese, Chinese and Vietnamese they were the worse. In regards of the treating of POW's and civilians.
    My grandfather served in WWII in Europe and told me nightmares about the German army. His best friend was taken captive for a time and had his testicles removed before being returned to the U.S. army with a nazi symbol burned into his azzcheek.

    Have you checked baptismal records or other sources on the Internet...chances are some distant relative of yours has already done the research that far back...all you have to do is tie your line into theirs! PM me if you want to know more.

    Im afraid I'm going to have that same problem, we currently have civil war records from 2 of the realtives on my dads side, but thats as far back as we've gone from the US side. I believe they came from Lyon, France, (Alsace-Lorraine region) Prussia in their time??..the timing of this is unreal..I'm currently disabled to work, I have PLENTY of time..lol, and was just thinking about continuing the research that my father had started, not less than 30 min. ago while in the car. If I can be of any help let me know, I will surely keep in touch with you of anything I find out . good luck !

    Believe me, I'm fully aware of the history of the war, from the Eastern front to the Western front to the Solomon Islands to Burma.

    As for the research, I wasn't the one doing it. My dad and my grandfather were looking into it, but I just felt like sounding off about it.

    No, the closest thing I have come to that is my grandfather was in WW2. He had some pretty nasty things to say about the Germans so they aren't to friendly either.

    As far as heritage goes. I am Italian, and a little sweedish..
