Discussion & Documentation: 

A list of debts held by Heinrich Conrad [sic] recorded in Wörlitz in 1766 indicates that he was born in Wörlitz.

Heinrich Konradi, a farmer, his wife Maria, and children (Maria, age 5; Leopoldina, age 1) arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 4 July 1766 aboard the English frigate Love & Unity under the command of Skipper Thomas Fairfax.

Heinrich Conradi, his wife Maria, and daughter Maria Elisabeth are recorded on the list of colonists being transported from St. Petersburg to Saratov in 1767 along with a note that daughter Maria Elisabeth died en route.

They settled in the Volga German colony of Orlovskaya on 7 June 1767 and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 37.

In 1797, Heinrich Konradi moved from Orlovskaya to Boisroux.

The 1767 census records that Heinrich Konradi came from the German village of Wörlitz in the Dessau region.
