My appreciation to all of you wonderful people who responded to my request
regarding Ljuschitza and I will follow up with more precise information, but I
made a huge mistake in the ancestor in question, Gottfried Schindel. It was
actually his brother Alexander Schindel (11Mar1888/1889) who appears to have
been born in a similar sounding village. Checking _www.ancestry.com_
(http://www.ancestry.com) for WWI Draft Reg for Alex Schindel, Gladwin, Michigan
the town appears to be Leuwinge or Luwinge, Russia.
Gottfried (Fred) Schindel registered as Fred Schindel (12Aug1887) born
Rangetia ??? Russia. Another brother Heinrich registered as Henry Schindel
(10Mar1895) in Poland, Russia.
I do have my grandfather's (Gottlieb Schindel) Lutheran confirmation
certificate stating he was born in Lublin, Russia on 10May1882 and was confirmed by
Pastor Johann Theodor Ernst Barth in the Parish of Nowograd-Wolynsk. His
naturalization papers state he was born in Lublin.
I have not been able to find naturalization papers for Gottfried or
Heinrich. They both served in WWI (Ohio National Army). I assume some type of
citizenship was granted to them before they went to war, but unable to find the
source for these papers.
Their father, Ludwig/Ludwik/Louis Schindel was born around 1844-1847. His
father may have been named Gottlieb. Ludwig served or was drafted into the
Russian Army. He married Emilia/Amelia Scheske probably around 1875. She was
born about 1859. Their first son, Louis was born 5Apr1877 in Russia/Poland.
1. Leuwinge/Luwinge and Rangetia - am I on the right track thinking Luszyca
might be a starting point?
2. Another brother Samuel Schindel/Schendel born about 1879 moved to Brazil
with his family (possibly from Wladyn, Russia sometime after 1912 and before
1936. Sam died August 1953 in or around Blumenau, Santa Catarina, Sao Paulo.
He left a wife, Pauline and at least two children, a son and a daughter.
They spelled their last name as Schendel. I am hoping someone in Brazil might
help me reconnect with my family.
Thank you so much for your advice and help. It truly is appreciated.
