Discussion & Documentation: 

[Heinrich] Nikolaus Schulz, his wife Anna, and children (Maria, age 5; Johann, age 1) arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 10 August 1766 aboard a ship under the command of Skipper Nikolaus Peter Pink.

They are recorded on an appendix to the 1767 census of Paulskaya in Household No. 72 along with a note that they relocated to the Volga German colony of Schaffhausen in 1768.

The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Nikolaus Schulz was a farmer while the 1767 census records that he was a weaver (Weber). Both the Oranienbaum passenger list and the 1767 census record that Heinrich Nikolaus Schulz came from the German region of Hamburg.
