    I don't it matters much if it does or not.

    I used to work with engineers who emigrated from Russia. It always sounded like the had a mouthful of marbles when they spoke, even in English.

    But there's a good story here. We made PC Networking software. Nothing military or classified, just commercial stuff... It was in the Early 1990s, and one of our big customers was SAC (yes, the Peace is our Profession SAC). One day SAC calls and has a problem. After several days of not being able to resolve it, they tell us to "send the guy who wrote the software" . So we send Mike to Offut. About when he should of shown up at the gate we get a frantic call... "Who is this! He can't come here!!!!" "Mike is the guy who wrote the software, why can't he go there??" "He, he, he's RUSSIAN!!!"

    Well...Токарь-расточник is turner-borer in Russian...I had to use Google's translator to get that far. Kinda/sorta think your ancestors may not have been so enamored with the sound of that language.
