First Settlers' List

The information for the First Settlers' List was compiled from the book, Einwanderung in das Wolgagebiet (Immigration to the Volga Region) 1764-1767, Vol. 1, by Igor Pleve. Additional information such as family members, age, date of arrival, and religious faith can be obtained from the book which can be purchased from the AHSGR Store.

I have arranged the family names alphabetically by last name. The superscript number is the order in which Dr. Pleve has listed the colonists in his book. If there is an alpha indicator next to the superscript number that means that the individual though not necessarily a family member is living in the household of whomever number is indicated, i.e. Eva Bezolt1a is living in the household of Johann Georg Frank1.

Note: All spellings for given names and surnames are as they appear in the book, as is the use of the (?) question mark.

Note #2: Any name with an asterisk * indicates that though this individual is not listed in the aforementioned book as a First Settler, there is additional documentation, namely, surname charts researched by Dr. Pleve which lists the date of arrival in the village as that of the date of settlement for the village.
