Marlene Strand was a woman on a mission. She wanted to find the house in which her maternal grandparents lived in the late 1800s, in a small village in what is now the Ukraine.

She found it in 2008 in what was once a German village filled with Lutherans. During the late 19th and early 20th centuries, small German villages dotted the map in what was the nation of Bessarabia. Each village had only one church, either Catholic or Lutheran. Since Strand's ancestors were Lutherans, they lived in the German Lutheran village of Kloestitz.
