Volga German
Christina (Bernhart) Schneider is a Volga German.
Christina (Bernhart) Schneider has German Roots.

Family #81 in the 1798 Grimm census.

She was originally from the Colony of Moor (Klyuchy) in the Volga region. It is possible she immigrated there with her first husband, and then later moved to Grimm when she married Georg Schneider.

Christina Barbara was the second wife of Georg Schneider. It is a coincidence that his two wives had identical first and middle names. A quick look at each birth date tells you the two women are different people, separated by at least 20 years. Georg Schneider married his second wife, Christina Barbara Bernhart, shortly after the death of his first wife. Since the new couple had their first child in 1789, they were probably married no later than 1788. If Christina Bernhart married her husband in 1788, she would have been 23 years of age.

The Christina mentioned in the 1775 Grimm census is Johann Wendel Meisner's wife, Christina Barbara Trauenfelder. Her second husband was Georg Schneider. The couple married in 1773 or 1774, after the death of Johann Wendel Meisner. By 1775, she and Georg were the parents of Johannes, six months old, and Georg was the step-father of the four Meisner boys. Christina Trauenfelder Meisner Schneider died at some point prior to 1788.
