Translation from Russian - Pictures (LEBEDENKO/LEBEDENCO family) #photographs #russia #romania #translation #ukraine


Can anyone translate the banners & subtitles for me? And if you have any idea of what is going on in the pictures please help understand it! All I know is that they have something to do with my family, lebedenko (lebedenco at Brazil) who lived in the USSR, not sure if Ukraine or Romania... if you recognize any of the places please let me know as well! One of the pics has numbers on it, not sure why, but I’m trying to find out... the other has some names, if could translate them as well, it’d be great!!!
Thanks for Everything!

Lailah Lebedenco Evangelista

I believe it's "Varpa" in the last pictures, which ties in with there being a Latvian Baptist community in Varpa, Brazil.  The greenery and some indigenous faces also point at that.  Perhaps the poster's Ukrainian ancestors joined that community.
