If this is the Sehn family found in the Bessarabia region, it looks like they may have come from the Elsass region located near the French/German border. This area was psobably French when they left for South Russia.

yes my Grandfather came from Bessarabia to Canada in the 1920's and he did say probably from Alsace region. How did you find this info? Is there a way to see if there are any relatives still there?

A search on Bing shows these links which seem to connect with your family name:

Dean M Sane
http://familytreemaker.genealogy.com/users/s/a/n/Dean--M-Sane/index.html
- The email is not good anymore but you can probably find him with the information on this page.

Catholic Germans from Russia & Romania

- Contributor John Ruscheinski has Sehn family in Bessarabia
