Discussion & Documentation: 

Johann Georg Konrad, a farmer, his wife Elisabeth, and children [based upon their ages, some believed to be his siblings rather than his children] (Georg, age 15; Johann Georg, age 13; Margaretha, age 11; Barbara, age 3) arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 13 September 1766 aboard the hooker Die Jungfer Dietrika under the command of Skipper Christian Korsholm.

Johann Godfried [sic] Konrad, his wife Elisabeth, and children [based upon their ages, some believed to be his siblings ratherthan his children] (Johann Georg, age 15; Johann Georg [again], age 13; Barbara, age 3) are recorded on the list of colonists being transported from St. Petersburg to Saratov in 1767 along with a note that all 3 of the children died en route.

Georg Konrad (age 26) , a farmer, and his wife Elisabeth (age 23) settled in the Volga German colony of Pfeifer on 22 August 1767 and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 92.

The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Johann Georg Konrad came from the German region of Würzburg. The 1767 also records that he came from the German village of Arnstein in the German region of Würzburg.

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