Otto, thank you for the very helpful explanations, suggestions and
information. It’s good to hear that we (my wife and I and my sister,
Elizabetyh) made a good choice going with the 23andMe service. 


My paternal Haplogroup is R1b1b2a1a2*. I trace my Neumann line back to GG
Grandfather Heinrich (Hynryk) Neumann  Born: 1807  In:   Kepa Sladowska,
Ilow, Warschau, Polen. His father was Andreas Neumann, born 1788 in Poland.
Heinrich’s son, Christian Neumann moved to Volhynia near Zhitomir in 1863
where he married Eleanore Kalash in 1864. My Grandfather married Elizabeth
Albrecht in Hemthal, Volhynia, but moved his family to Dawlekanowo near Ufa
in Russia. My father, Emil Neumann, born 1900 near Ufa, left the USSR for a
better life in Canada in 1929, having lived in the Zaparozhia area of
Ukraine  where he worked on the Hydro electric project involving the damming
of the Dneiper River. He left behind his mother and five siblings, after his
brother warned him to leave the country because his contact with German and
American experts on the project would put him at risk of exile or worse.


My maternal group is T2b4. Maternal line I have back a few generations. My
mother was Elizabeth Neumann (geb Kwiatkowski). My Grandmother was Hedwig
Lina Kwiatkowski (geb. Bauer in Werdau, Germany). Maternal GGrandmother was
Wilhelmine Bauer (geb. Ketzel in Möschwitz, Vogtland, Saxony). GGGrandmother
was Johanne G. Ketzel (geb. Seidel 1806 in Vogtland). I also have the Ketzel
name back to about 1530 in the Vogtland area of Saxony. My maternal
grandfather Franz Heinrich August Kwiatkowski was born in Neufahrwasser,
Danzig. His parents were Joseph and Maria Kwiatkoski (geb. Bork).
