Volga German
Gottlieb Schultz was a Volga German.
Gottlieb Schultz has German Roots.

Family #26 in the 1767 Grimm census.

Family #110 in the 1775 Grimm census.

Family #27 in the 1798 Grimm census.

Gottlieb Schultz is listed in the 1767 Grimm census, which indicates that he probably immigrated with those Germans who came to Russia in 1766. A search for his name in the standard immigration books has come up empty. [1] [2] [3] His name was most likely inadvertently omitted.

There were two people who might be matches who were first immigrants to Denmark. [4]

  • B-1529 Johann Gabriel Schultz, born 1716, was too old to be a match with the Gottlieb of this profile who was born in 1742.
  • B-1531 Johann Gottfried Carsten Schulz spelled his name slightly different from the Gottlieb of this profile, but the names are similar enough to point out a possible match. There is no age given for him and it looks like he wasn't married. The fact that he was single is not an issue, since this was before his immigration to Russia, an he most likely started out as a single immigrant who married along the way.

According to the 1767 census, Gottlieb Schultz was from the Darmstadt area. That may not be his place of birth, however, just the last place he lived before immigrating to Russia. He may have also been from a small town or village in the Darmstadt area, but gave Darmstadt as the general place from where he came.

1767 Grimm Census [5]

Family #: 26
Head of the Household: Gottlieb Schultz, 27, Lutheran craftsman from Darmstadt
Wife: Sophia Annette Schultz, 37
Stepson: Ludwig, 12 [no surname given]
Daughter: Sophia, 7 [probably also a stepdaughter]
Daughter: Maria Katharina Schultz, 2 weeks old

Daughter Sophia was also probably a stepdaughter based on the fact that she and her brother Ludwig have the surname Vitkher in the 1775 census, most likely a Russian interpretation of the name Victor. His wife Sophia Annette was married to her first husband during their journey to the Volga region of Russia. Upon his death, she married Gottlieb Schultz and their first child was born less than a year later.
