David became active in genealogy in 1996. His research has taken him to Ukraine three times since 2003. He researches Catholic families from the Beresan region near Nikolayev in present-day Ukraine. His particular interests are families from the villages of Rastadt and München who immigrated to the plains of North America and settled in the states of North Dakota and Montana, as well as the provinces of Saskatchewan and Alberta. David's interests also include the culture, traditions, and social life of the Germans from Russia that make this ethnic group truly unique.
