I am looking for any information on my maternal family that goes by the surname of LEBEDENKO/LEBEDENCO or POPOV, whom lived in Moldova.
My grandfather was born after his parents had already immigrated from Russia to Brazil around the 1924, probably from Deutschland... one of them must have their names somewhere in the Hamburg Passenger Lists, though I couldn’t find it...
My great grandmother, Feodora POPOV (1900), was Romanian, and my greatgrandfather, Kiril LEBEDENCO/LEBEDENKO (1984), was Moldavian, born in Nikolaevka, Tiraspol, Transnistria, Moldova... they married in the city he was born in around 1920... but I really do not know how to keep going from there... I know my grandfather great grandfather was of israelense roots, his name was Yahim LEBEDENCO, but that was as far as I could go... Fidorka/Feodora‘s parents were Gerassin/Heracin POPOV, son of Miheika POPOV & Parankia CERKASSIN, & Anna BULGACOV, daughter of Grigori BULGACOV & Marfa/Marhutka YASTREBOV.
Any of their names, if are there any translations or anyone could explain the differing names for the same people, like Feodora was also called Fidorka & Marfa was called Marhutka (that’s what I meant by “nicknames) it’d be great help...
No matter how much information, if any, contact me please!!
