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.

Nicolaus Schultz [sic], his wife Anna Maria, and children (Anna Maria, age 5¼; Joh. Christoph, age 1¼) are recorded on the list of colonists being transported from St. Petersburg to Saratov in 1767.

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.

There are no known surviving male lines of this Schulz family among the Volga German colonies.
