Beideck is the German name for the village of Talovka which is among the Volga River colonies. What I know about the Germans of the Volga River has been included on the Kammerzell family page.
John Weil lists "Talofka" as his origin on his 1918 Record of Naturalization. His declaration of intent made in abt. 1910 in Nebraska also states Beideck as origination. Here though, his departure is stated as Quebec...Daughter, Elizabeth's certificate of marriage states she was born in Ohio. John's 1918 Record of Naturalization says she was born in Lincoln, Nebraska. Although the states of Ohio and Nebraska do not have a certificate of birth for her, family strongly agrees that the Weil family was in Lincoln in 1905, the year of Elizabeth's birth. I tend to use the 'mis-documentation' on the marriage certificate, as indication that the Weil family one time may have been in Ohio. With a departure into the U.S. as Quebec, this is possibly so. Considering an entry through Quebec, and looking at the dates/places of birth of Elizabeth and sister Katie, tells us that the Weils most likely left Russia sometime between 1903-1904.
