Welcome to the Club! 04.12.2007 00:53

Dear friends, we are very pleased to share a good news, that grandson of the founder of Metropol Record label (A.K.A Aprelevskij Zavod or Aprelevka Plant) Gottlieb Heinrich Carl Moll (in Russian Bogdan Vasilyevich Moll) John-Peter Moll recently joined our club. Following is what he writers about his grandfather:

MetropolRecord were only a side activity of my grandfather. His main business was making enamel and enameled bathtubs. He had also farms and on the main one, located in Duminitschi (a village in Kaluga Oblast R-R) my father was born and grown up. On the Duminitschi farm my grandfather introduced a system, which ensured the delivery of 100% tuberculosis free milk. Furthermore he started to introduce the apple variety Koriznewje , which I heard, is still popular in Russia. Due to his social behavior only minimal harm was experienced by the family during the revolution. Some family members were kept for some time at a Volga island but could then travel to Neumuenster, Germany where my grandfather had another enamel and bathtub factory. Like the possessions in Russia, the factory in Neumuenster was nationalized in 1939 to produce airplanes. I believe that the rise and fall of my family is much more interesting than the Buddenbrooks written by Thomas Mann

Currently, John-Peter lives in Vienna, but after retirement he plans go back to Neumuenster and continue the genealogical work started by his cousin Georg Moll. Georg is in his late 80's now, and unfortunately the age is already taking its toll.

We cordially welcome John-Peter in our club and wish him and his cousin Georg every success in restoring genealogy of their wonderful family.

Please take a look at Alexander Tikhonov article The Jubilee of Aprelevka, that now available in two languages: English and Russian.
