Re: Looking for KOOP Ancestors from Russia
I will have to check my GRANDMA database to see if we are related. GRANDMA says that Isbrand Koop is in the Busau, Crimea. Mennonite Church Records, 1901, Vol. 2 The records were Microfilmed at the Central State Archive of Crimea in Simferopol, Ukraine 19 Dec 1996. LDS Microfilm #2084337.I also see that Woldimar "Wally "Koop was married to Elfrieda Lind. Woldimar died in 1990? No children listed with them. Another source for Isbrand is from the book "From Bolshevik Russia to America" published 2001 by Henry D. Rempel.You should get a copy of GRANDMA. There is alot of info on the Koop family that will help you. Then if you need more info on the sources you can email the CMHS. They are very good at assisting people with genealogy.
