DNA results vs records #dna

I have just received updated DNA results from Ancestry. They confirm what I have always known about my father's family, that they were German, or more particularly, Prussian. But in the naturalization records, etc., they are listed as having been born in Russia. (They also say they spoke English, which makes me wonder if they spent some time in England on their way to the U.S.)  We are talking about the late 1800s, so is this a geographic/historical thing, that country borders changed so much?
