German Anzacs from Russia


This list includes ethnic German Anzacs born on the territory of Baltic provinces (mostly modern day Latvia), in Poland and in Russia. Their German origin was established on the basis of names, religious denomination, contacts with descendants, and a study of naturalisation and other records. In many cases it is still impossible to determine with confidence their self identity. Some of them might have been completely Russianised or shared the culture of Baltic and Polish people among whom they lived. There also is a possibility that some men in this list of German Anzacs are Latvians and Estonians who Germanised their names.
