Allyn is quite correct. It is well worth checking out, even if they are not
direct ancestors -- some of my best EWZ clues have come from collateral
Be warned that there are many Wentland/Wendland files, especially for the
villages in the Zhitomir area.
There are other record groups that might be of interest to you when you are
at the National Archives in College Park. Ask either of the people at the
main desk for their advice.
