Fink (Ernestinendorf / Meinhard)
There are two Fink families from the German village of Leisel that settled in the Volga German colonies. Their relationship to each other, if any, needs further research.
(1) Johannes Fink, a farmer, and his wife Elisabeth settled in the Volga German colony of Ernestinendorf on 3 August 1767. They are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 19.
The 1767 census records that Johannes Fink came from the German village of Leisel.
(2) Heinrich Fink, a farmer, and his wife Katharina are recorded on an appendix to the 1767 census of Boisroux in Household No. 39 along with a note that they settled in the colony of Nieder-Monjou in 1768.
Johann Heinrich Fink and his family recorded on the 1798 census of Meinhard in Household No. Mn35.
