Biography

Volga German
Gertrude (Bierman) Zulauf is a Volga German.
Gertrude (Bierman) Zulauf has German Roots.


Family #141 in the 1775 Grimm census.
Family #132 in the 1798 Grimm census.
Family #32 in the 1834 Grimm census.

Sophia Gertruda Bierman was born about 1755 in the Friedeburg area of what is now Germany. She immigrated to Russia with her parents in 1766. [1]

She is the only one of three siblings who survived the journey from Oranienbaum, Russia, to the Volga River region of Russia and is included in the first census of Grimm.


1767 Grimm Census [2]

Family # 66
Head of the Household Philip Biermann, age 36, Lutheran craftsman from Isenburg
Wife Anna Elisabeth Biermann, age 40
Child #1 Sophia Gertrude Biermann, age 12


By 1775 she had married Johann Zulauf and the couple had a daughter named Katharina. At the time of the census, they lived with her parents in household #141.


1775 Grimm Census [3]

Family # 141
Head of the Household Philip Bierman, age 46
Wife Anna Elizabeta [sic] Bierman, age 48
Child #1 Elizabeta [sic] Bierman, age 5 years 6 months
Child #2 Gertrude Bierman Zulauf, age 19
Husband of Child #2 Johann Zulauf, age 25
Grandchild #1 Katarina [sic] Zulauf, age 6 months


By 1798 the family was living in Galka, presumably temporarily since they are still listed in the 1798 Grimm census. Daughter Katharina is not included in this listing; she was probably married and living with her husband's family.


1798 Grimm Census [4]

Family # 132
Head of the Household Johannes Zulauf age 49, living in Galka with all his family members
Wife Gertrude Bierman, age 41
Child #1 Johann Philipp Bierman, age 18


The family returned to Grimm from Galka, and after the death of her husband, son Johann Philipp was designated the head of the household. Gertrude is not specifically listed in the 1834 census, but her husband, son and grandchildren are. She most likely passed away at some point prior to 1834. Had she survived, she would have been 78 years old.
