    Cool Ordered a Family Finder Test for the Slavic Princess in My House

    I'm talking about my wife, not my youngest daughter, who would be the half-Slavic princess.

    Of course, her paternal grandfather was born in Tallinn, Estonia, so I am not sure I can count him as a Slav.

    I need to conduct a Skype interview of my mother-in-law to find out more, but my Russian is not up to it. I have to put my daughter on the case.

    The only surnames I could enter at FTDNA thus far for my wife are Margus (Estonia), Kaminsky (Poland), and Sagalevich (Ukraine).

    I am really looking forward to these results.

    Now if only you could track down and test the Y-DNA of a male Kaminsky (Polish Kamiński) in your wife's family tree.

    Nice! - taking advantage of FTDNA's Holiday Sale? Today's automated email from Mr. Greenspan mentioned the sale ends this Saturday, December 31st at midnight.

    I'm debating whether to get a kit or two for some older gen. members of distant relatives.

    Wish my wife cared more about it. Her mom has some cool old photos of men from that branch of the family in Polish Army uniforms, some of those men had big handlebar moustaches. Unfortunately, I don't have those photos to post here.

    My wife's most recent Kaminsky went by the Russian version, Kaminskaya. She was her maternal grandmother, Ksenia Kaminskaya.

    Cool! Maybe she will be a match to my brother or to me.

    My father-in-law's younger brother lives in Volzhskiy, across the river and just north of Volgograd. He's pretty old but still hanging in there. If I get the chance while he is still with us, I'll try to get a sample from him. My wife has numerous Sagalevich cousins in Ukraine. If I can, I will also try to get one of them to test.

    Sagalevich sounds like an Ashkenazic surname. It's similar to Segal/Seagal/Sagal.
