Discussion & Documentation: 

There are two Eurich families who settled in the Volga German colony of Dobrinka on 29 July 1765. Their relationship to each other is not recorded on the 1767 census, but they are probably father and son.

(1) Widower Michael Eurich (age 80), a craftsman (Handwerker), is recorded on the 1767 census of Dobrinka in Household No. 27.

(2) David Friedrich Eurich (age 42), a farmer, and his wife Regina are recorded on the 1767 census of Dobrinka in Household No. 26.

The 1767 census records that both of these Eurich families came from the Swedish town of Stockholm.
