Christian [sic] Tinike, a farmer, and his wife Johanna arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 10 August 1766 aboard a ship under the command of Skipper Nikolaus Peter Pink.
Christian Tiniecke and his wife Anna Sophia are recorded on the list of colonists being transported from St. Petersburg to Saratov in 1767.
They settled in the Volga German colony of Boisroux on 3 August 1767. Christoph [sic] Tinike is recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 88 along with his wife Sophia.
Both the Oranienbaum passenger list and the 1767 census record that Christian/Christoph Tinike came from the German region of Dessau.
There are no known surviving male lines of this family among the Volga German colonies.
