Her father was Mikhail Vodianov. Her mother was Natalia Victorovna Gromova. Her maternal grandparents were Victor Filippovich Gromov and Larisa Gavrilovna Gromova.
Natalia stated that her paternal grandmother was of Mordvin ancestry. (Russian Mordvins divided into Moksha and Erzya. I don’t know what exactly was her grandmother.

Thank you.

BTW, do you know anything about the ancestry/ancestors’ names of Anton Yelchin? (anything more than what’s already on his page).

Оnly thing what i found, perhaps Anton’s maternal grandparents were Grigory Korin and Sonya

Do you mean this man, or a different Grigory Korin?[email protected]/6896411551/

I think different because there is no information that the poet Grigory Korin and Anton is relatives. Can I help you more?:)

Mila Kunis? She said two of her grandparents were named Boris and Rosa.

Thank you.

This page was tagged with Erzya. I don’t know if there’s any evidence for that?
