According to The Immigration of German Colonists to Denmark and Their Subsequent Emigration to Russia in the Years 1759-1766, Georg Michael was the eldest child of Valentin and Sophia Romig/Ramig. The family was an Evangelical Lutheran from Spachbrücken, Hessen.

For a discussion about his heritage, see Johann Valentin Ramig Ramig-10 and Maria Sophia Mayin Mayin-1.

Much of southern Germany had been ravaged by war and famine, Georg Michael and his father Valentin were concerned about being able to provide for their families, as well as to find a way for their children to have better lives.

In 1759, Danish King Frederick V invited Germans from Hessen and the Palatinate to help settle the area of Schleswig-Holstein, at that time under the control of the Danes. The king was interested in converting the marsh lands to arable farm land. Germans were known for their good farming skills and for being hard workers, so it seemed like a win-win situation both both Danes and Germans. Georg Michael and his father Valentin decided the opportunity to immigrate to Denmark with his family was too attractive to pass up.

At the time of his immigration to Denmark, Georg Michael was 23 years old, married to Maria Catharina, age 30. The couple had two children, Anna Margaretha (age 7) and George Valentin (age 7 weeks). He is listed in a separate family from his parents and remaining siblings.

He and his family arrived in Flensburg, Denmark on 09 June 1762 as reserved colonists. As of 30 September 1763, Georg Michael lived with his family lived at 30 in Colony G18 "Neboerm," in the district of Gottorf.

The marshlands were very inhospitable to farmers like Georg Michael and his father. Although the Germans were good farmers with typical farm land, it was far more difficult to convert these former wetlands and grow crops. Most of the German immigrants barely reaped enough to feed their families, let alone to provide food for others in Denmark. When Catherine the Great invited Germans to immigrate to Russia, they decided it offered them a better opportunity than what was there for them in Schleswig-Holstein.

On 03 May 1765 both families deserted their homes in Denmark and immigrated with 57 other families to Russia.
