Hans [Georg] Gebert, a farmer, his wife Kunigunda, and children (Margaretha, age 13; Nikolaus, age 6) arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 12 September 1766 aboard a ship under the command of Skipper Heinrich Sager.

Georg Gaber [sic], his wife Cunigunda, and children (Margretha, age 13; Nicolaus, age 6) are recorded on the list of colonists being transported from St. Petersburg to Saratov in 1767 along with a note that daughter Margretha died en route.

Georg Gebert, his wife Kunigunde, and son Nikolaus (age 9) are recorded on the 1767 census of Hölzel in Household No. 12. They had settled in Hölzel on 11 September 1767.

In 1793, Nikolaus Gerbert moved to Hölzel to Hildmann.

The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Hans Gebert came from the German region of Bamberg. The 1767 census records that he came from the German village of Schlockenau in the Bamberg region.
