I couldn't help from replying to this one.  Is, or was, Christian Haupt
a Lutheran?  And if so, are there any descendents on the East Coast of
the US?

I have a cousin who is the widow of a Haupt, who was a Lutheran
minister, and it just got to my curiosity.

Thank you so much for giving me a better picture of the times in which
great grandfather Christian Haupt and his family may have experienced.  

I mentioned the letters about Memelland in the mid to late 20s only
there was a story in the family that Christian and his family, decided
not to 
return to Volhynia, and I am only assuming that they were among those
forced to 
leave in 1915, but instead may have eventually gotten to the area known
Memelland.  That was the reason for the question regarding being allowed
freely go elsewhere after being forced  to leave Volhynia.

No one wishes more than I that those letters still existed.
they are only a vague memory of an 84 year old uncle, of envelopes
"Memelland."  My grandfather, Edward Haupt, was a very private man and
shared very 
little of his history with his children or grandchildren.  I think this
have been the case of many of our ancestors who lived thru those

Again, Dick, thank you so much for your history lesson.
