I am seeking your help in finding male descendents of a particular Hiebert/Huebert family who might be interested in participating in the Mennonite DNA project. This time it's the family of David Hiebert. Most of his descendents moved to the United States in the 1870s. However, some may have stayed in Russia. I would be very grateful to anyone who could put me in touch with members of this family. For a short outline of the family see below.
