Homeland Book of the Bessarabian Germans (Paperback) by Albert Kern
is a must read for anyone whose ancestors were born or lived in Bessarabia. Those Germans from Russia whose direct line does not stem from Bessarabia will also benefit from the insight written by many people of the area. The descriptive writings about the history, immigration, and then the resettlement during World War II, grips you with the smell of the earth, the blue of the sky, and the wrenching sadness, when they must leave their land, home, animals and all they possess. The articles on more than 100 colonies and estates, are written by the people who lived and served in various capacities in the area. The voices of experience and daily living, pictures of homes, churches, and colony life. It includes one of the best lists of site locations of German Parishes in Bessarabia. The Honor List of Missing in Action and Deaths in WWI and WWII lists hundreds and hundreds of names of sons and fathers of all the various colonies.
Jewish Roots in Ukraine and Moldova: Pages from the Past and Archival Inventories (The Jewish Genealogy Series) by Miriam Weiner
Miriam Weiner, a courageous and brilliant historian and archivist, has haunted the archives of Eastern Europe, painstakingly piecing together the world that was. Here she has memorialized hundreds of shtetls and towns through document examples and photographs.
In addition to providing the first tangible inventory of what the regional archives hold, in regard to the history of Jewish families, this book gives a wonderful pictorial overview of the area. It does so by providing photos of the places the families inhabited in the past, contrasted, in many instances, with how those same places appear now. The vivid past jumps off the pages of this beautifully formatted book, just as the lure of the book's vast archive document inventory tempts the reader with its research possibilities for the future. This book is a must for anyone contemplating research into their family history in Ukraine and Moldova, and a treasure for those who are merely curious about the world Jewish ancestors lived in and left behind.
