Back to the roots! – Zhytomer

This week an exciting event took place in the family Drewlow!

After almost 150 years, a member from the Drewlow family returned to Zhitomir to look for the right! 😀
My great-great Grandfather Christian Drewlow lived in the region of today Westukraine. Unfortunately we don’t have so much information where they exaclty lived and for how long, but we do now, that they stayed in Zhitomir for a while! So this is a really exciting and important step to explorer my roots and family history! Enjoy the pictures!
