Georg Schmalz 1883 Johann Schmalz 1919

My father, Johann Schmalz, was born in 1919 in Russia near the Kuban River near a city called Krasnador(before 1920 was named - Ekaterinodar after Katherine the Great). Dad was born in Semenofka south of the Kuban River. He had 10 brothers and sisters and his father, Georg Schmalz (born 1883-1919) died 2 weeks prior to my dad's birth on January 13th. My grandfather Georg Schmalz, lost both his parents by the time he was 18.

At one point my dad's mother, Klara Schmalz (nee Zwenger DOB: 1884), was sent to Siberia for hiding food in the family farm's well...around 1930. Her father, my grandfather, was once thrown in jail for praying for rain during a drought.

Please send me an email if you know anything about the towns mentioned, the Schmalz family living in that area in Russia or any Zwenger relations...thank you!
