Here is a list

of the emigrants from the Swabian-German village
of  Glogowatz (now Vladimirescu) in the Banat (area then of Eastern Hungary
and now of Western Romania as well) between 1905 and 1914
to North America, mainly New York State,
on ships with such names as Pannonia (= Hungary)
Carpathia and Slavonia from Trieste,
as well as a few others from Hamburg:

And here is a painting found by my Lithuanian friend Almina in a second-hand shop
in Colorado, which has Glogowatz written on the back:



















Swabian Germans founded settlements as far east as north-western Turkey
and the Russian river Volga.  Several famous Russian musicians,
notably Alfred Schnittke and Sviatoslav Richter, were of Volga-German stock.

How ever do you find out such stuff? This, of course, is typical of your historical bombshells--a glimpse into an unknown universe of human suffering, experience, and aspiration.
