Peter Wulf  and his family immigrated first in 1762 to Denmark (Schleswig-Holstein) and joined the migration to Russia in 1766.

They arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 20 May 1766 aboard the Russian galliot Catharina Eleonora under the command of Skipper Peter Röder.

They settled in the Volga German colony of Dinkel on 12 July 1767 and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 22.

Eichhorn records that Peter Wulf came from Süderstapel, today a part of the collective community of Stapelholm, in the district of Schleswig-Flensburg in the German State of Schleswig-Holstein.
