After WW I: They were possibly assisted by the Fu"rsorgeverein deutscher 
Ru"ckwanderer (Welfare Association for German Repatriates). A 
Ru"ckwanderer is a citizen returning to his home country after being 
abroad. This association helped ethnic Germans return to Germany and 
aided with their naturalization process until 1918, perhaps later.
