In my Anthropology of the Great Plains class I have always described the
"Russified" Volga Germans as being either Protestants or Catholics,
reflecting the division of their original closed corporate mother colonies
on either side of the Volga River... and subsequent sorting out by faith
into either Kansas or Nebraska.

Thanks Bob. Since the Ponca people say that she was Jewish from
Germany, that was the correct assumption. Probably not the same person
as the Nebraskan Frida Hahn from Russia who might have been Volga
Germans and therefore not Jewish? Just guessing...
