We took the next data from the list of all German villages in Russia on http://eiprd.ru/. For the inhabitants number the issues of the census in 1926 were used (except of extra declared). Some numbers doesn't correspondent with other sources. For example according to this list Dolinsk had 302 inhabitants in 1926, but it's 76 more then the number for 1919 from the other source. Such rising is unpropably.

Summary

The fixing of the total number of all persons coming from Neu Samara must also consider those who in the course of time moved from Neu Samara voluntarily or forced. Some families have already done the beginning in 1906, when many of the Neu-Samarians moved to the new settlements in Siberia. After the revolution all richer Neu-Samarians had to flee, above all the estate owners and storekeepers. However, the big wave came in the 20-s as many emigrated to North America and South America. After the World War II the persons drawn in the Trudarmy might not immediately come home, many have returned then no more to Neu Samara. Then later many young people from Neu Samara moved to the towns. Therefore the number of the persons, living today, moved away before 1988 and their descendants, probably exceeds the number of  the remained till 1988. Altogether the number of all persons, born self or their forefathers in Neu Samara, is propably more then 20,000.
