          WalterVV: (aka Grechinnaya Luka and Gretchinaja Luka) is a Lutheran village on the western side of the Volga River.  Its FSL is being prepared for publication by Jean Roth and Mary Mills, the AHSGR Village Coordinators, who have generously agreed to allow this project to index their work-in-progress, a many-year-old attempt to identify and confirm exact German origins for every first settler.  Their work is phenomenal, having started with a copy of the original Russian list, through their Walter Research Group they have coordinated translation and  research contributions from many people, in the US, in Germany, and in Russia, although a great deal has been done by Jean Roth herself.  Their working title is Village of Walter Emigration List.  According to this, the first settlers were from the following places with the family names shown in parens following the place. Verified entries or corrections are in red.  The number with the family name is their household number in the FSL.  Much later the Pleve version of this FSL was published in vol.4 of Einwanderung…., pp.295-319.  Where the place and family names in that differ from the WRG version, such names are rendered in green below.
