Re: Migration Eastward from Germanic countries #germany #lithuania

1.  Tzarina Catherine the Great was in born to a German noble family, had French tutors for her formal education, and during her reign she brought over many German and French individuals into Russia.

2.  On a few occasions I heard my grandfather speculate that his family had come over to Belarus from Germany.

For whatever that may be worth.
