Volga German
Georg Kanzler is a Volga German.
Georg Kanzler has German Roots.

Family #1 in the 1775 Grimm census.

Johann Georg Kanzler was born about 1772 in Grimm, Russia, to Anna Katharina Kanzler and her first husband who was probably either Georg or Sebastian Kanzler, both early settlers of Grimm. For a discussion about who his father may have been, see Unknown Kanzler.

Johann Georg's father died shortly after his birth and his mother remarried to Gottfried Grimm, the designated leader of the new colony on the Volga and the man for whom the colony was named. Gottfried Grimm would have been the only father that Johann Georg Kanzler knew or remembered.

1775 Grimm Census [1]

This census reveals that Anna Katharina, Gottfried's wife at the time of this census, had a three year old child with her previous husband. This means that she cannot be the mother of any of Gottfried's children. The most likely scenario is that Gottfried's first wife and Anna Katharina's first husband did not survive the journey to the Volga River, and that the couple married between 1766 and 1767, either in Oranienbaum, Russia, or shortly after they arrived in Grimm.
