Biography

Volga German
Elisabeth (Räder) Saltzmann is a Volga German.
Elisabeth (Räder) Saltzmann has German Roots.


Family #38 in the 1767 Grimm census.
Family #116 in the 1775 Grimm census.
Family #90 in the 1798 Grimm census.


Elisabeth Räder was born about 1740, perhaps in the area of Darmstadt. The identities of her parents are not yet known. She married Johann Georg Saltzmann in Büdingen on April 04, 1766, four months before the couple immigrated to Russia. [In the Büdingen records she is identified as Anna Catharina.] [1]

She and her husband decided to immigrate to Russia, along with her husband's parents and sister. Johann Georg is listed as a Lutheran hammer maker from Darmstadt, traveling under document 4387 with his new bride Elisabeth. [2]

The couple is listed in the 1767 Grimm census along with their 9-month-old son named Johannes. Their child's age suggests that he was born in November or December of 1766. This suggests he was conceived shortly after their marriage in April of that year, which means Elisabeth and Johann Georg did not necessarily know each other for an extended period of time before their marriage. The Russian government preferred the immigrants to be married with families or young married couples. Many single immigrants married relative strangers, or at least people they didn't know well, before they left Germany for Russia, as was the case for Elisabeth and Johann Georg. Their son was most likely born in Oranienbaum, Russia.
