Konrad Fritz, a farmer, his wife Katharina, and their children (Anna Maria, age 18; Johann, age 15; Konrad, age 12) arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 9 August 1766 aboard the pink Novaya Dvinka under the command of Lieutenant Perepechin.

They settled in the Volga German colony of Krasnoyar on 20 July 1767 and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 31.

Both the Oranienbaum passenger list and the 1767 census record that Konrad Fritz came from the German village of Laubach.
