Thanks for starting Borodino / Bessarabia village.

The genealogy pages are: ... index.html

I've handled my collection a little differently than most researchers. I collect all the data I could and will find. Some information is from the actually data of the colonists, from Stumpp's book, other books, letters, e-mails, etc. etc.. Each piece of information is recorded. No data is without it's flaws. Sometimes there are differences of opinions as to who begot who... So, I let, you, the researcher see it all.

In addition to names, people have been very generous and have sent stories and photographs.

If you are a descendant of a Borodino colonists, I have space on my web site to add your family information.

Oh, and, please, remember. I and the other VC [Village Coordinators] have lives outside of the internet. Sometimes we cannot get back to you as quickly as you'd like but we do the best we can.

Sincerely yours,
Judy A. Remmick-Hubert
Borodino / Bessarabian VC
