I don't know if you have access to a book by Michael J. Anuta, "The Beautiful People Czudnochowski", but Section IV of the book lists the descendants of Fredericka (Frieda) Czudnochowski and Gottlieb Kostreva.  One of the children of this couple was Minnie Kostreva,born on 25 March 1877 in Russia, and Minnie married a Ludwig Nasgowitz circa 1897 in Russia.  Ludwig's birth date is given as 1874 in Russia.

When there is a reference to "Russia", you can be almost certain that it is one of the villages in the Toporishche (Топорище)area of today's Ukraine. A group of people from southeastern East Prussia settled there in 1865 and later years. Some of these settlers returned to East Prussia in the 1890s and emigrated to the U.S., settling in Wisconsin.

I have acquired this information, because the Czudnochowski or Tschudnochowski (Чудноховский)family is one of my research interests.

I'm just wondering if someone could help with my search for my family Nasgovitz. My gr. gr. grandfather Karl(Charles) was born in 1833 entered the us in 1891. He married Minnie Kostreva born 1877.  According to the book East Prussians From Russia, he was born in Germany and she in Russia. I have never found records with any villages or towns on them. There is a paragraph in the book which says "the beginning of the mission work in Schiemanen extends far back. In 1860 &1861, brothers Nasgovitz and Hein came as messangers of Jesus to Jaschonowitz and Schiemanen"  I believe that the Rummy congregation was the mother church and Ortelsburg was a mission church and then became a congregation. I'm not sure of the year, the first baptists came to Ortelsburg in 1869 to 1871. Thank you for any help, Cher Alexander
