    I am researching my mother’s family. Reich or rusch family from German and Busch family from Kamsychin. And came across your web site. Thank you.

      You should check out Geni.com or the My Heritage genealogy site. I connected with a distant relative there and think you may have some luck tracking down your family members. Another good resource is AHSGR.com They have a great store with lots of reference materials on the different German villages in Russia. You can even purchase maps, censuses, books, and more. I’m not affiliated in any of these groups other than I make use of them and have found them helpful in my search.
