Victor Minakhin, Olga’s third cousin once removed, has created a family tree of people who will attend our family reunion in Narva, Estonia this August. I’ve cropped the entire tree to show the part that directly relates to Olga’s line.
You can read about Olga’s grandfather, Orest Maximilianovich Grootten, here; and here is more info about the family.
As you can see, Olga’s family goes back to England in the early 1700s. Who would have thought?
Click here for the entire family tree, if you’re interested. Victor said there may be some corrections to be done, so I’ll update this when he sends a newer version.
