Discussion & Documentation: 

There are two Konradÿ families that settle in the Volga German colony of Pfeifer in 1767. Their relationship to each other is not recorded.

(1) Valentin Konradÿ, a baker (Bäcker), and his wife Marianna arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 22 July 1766 aboard the pink Lev under the command of Lieutenant Fyodor Fyodorov. He settled in the Volga German colony of Pfeifer on 20 August 1767 and is recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 20.

Johann Georg Konradÿ, a farmer, his wife Elisabeth, and children [believed to be his siblings rather than his children] (Georg, age 15; Johann Georg, age 13; Margaretha, age 11; Barbara, age 3) arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 13 September 1766 aboard the hooker Die Jungfer Dietrika under the command of Skipper Christian Korsholm. They settled in the Volga German colony of Pfeifer on 22 August 1767 and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 92.

The Oranienbaum passenger list records that both Valentin & Johann Georg Konradÿ came from the German region of Würzburg. The 1767 also records that Valentin came form the German region of Würzburg, but that Johann Georg came from the German village of Arnstein in the German region of Würzburg.
