ZitzerFN: mistakenly said by KS:497 to have settled in Neudorf.

ZitzerFN{Johannes}: by 15 June 1767 with wife {Barbara} he had settled at Schulz FSL #27, said to be fromUC [Solms-]Laubach [County].  For 1795 and 1798 see Mai1798:Mv2668,Sz5 (where {Barbara}’s maiden name is given as Lundgruen), 17,9,21 and Sk13.

ZitzerFN: Sally Zitzer reports that this family name is also spelled variously as Zizer, Ziser, and Cicer.   She notes that at least two Zitzer familes came to the Volga: one to Katharienstadt (although they missed the FSL they are listed in the 1776 census with their origin given as: Usingen, Nassau), and one to Schulz.   Sally reports that at this time it is unknown if the two were related,  but she has confirmed in the Usingen baptismal and confirmation records for the original Katharienstadt settler and his Leim wife that both from Usingen.  She also reports that a German researcher says the original Zizer in Usingen came there from Hungary in 1650.  For a bit more information go to http://cvgs.cu-portland.edu/origins/z/zitzer_katharinenstadt.cfm.

ZitzmannFN{Nicolaus}: Kulberg6433 reported his arrival in Oranienbaum from Herschfeld in September 1766 with wife {Maria} and 6 children, ages 2, 7, 11, 12, 17, and 21.  T3327-3332 reported that later in 1766 the family, consisting of {Nicolaus}, wife {A.Maria} and 5 children, ages 7, 11, 17 and 21,  left for for the Volga, but that {Nicolaus} and the 7-year old daughter died before reaching the Volga.  In September 1767 the Frank FSL #110 to be from Hirschfeldsic[Gersfeld], Freie Adelprovinz der alten Ritter(?).  Doris Evans reports that research done by Manfred Steinberger for Glenn Sitzman: the colonist was born 5 February1716 in Gersfeld, married Strauch{A.Maria} there on 28 August 1742, some of his children were born in Dorrnhof and some in Obernhausen.  His lineage has been traced  to Zitzmann{Jorg} born 1535 in Mosbach.   For additional information go to http://cvgs.cu-portland.edu/origins/z/zitzmann_frank.cfm, however there is a slight mistake there: Gersfeld was never in any Isenburg country.

ZitzmannFN{Georg}: was the eldest child of {Nicolaus} who survived to the Volga.  In September 1767 the Frank FSL #110 said he was 23 from Hirschfeldsic[Gersfeld], Freie Adelprovinz der alten Ritter(?), and was head of a family, with wife {Catharina} age 34, and {Elisabeth} 18 [evidently a sister of {Georg}], {Barbara} 12 [she does not seem to be mentioned in the family before this and might be the daughter of {Catharina} by a prior marriage??],  {Johannes} 11 [he evidently was {Georg}’s brother named {Johann Baltasar} in T3330], and {Andreas} 3 [who evidently could be the son of {Georg}.  In the 1798 Frank census {Georg} and {A.Katharina, nee Hein} head household #92; {Georg}’s parents seem to have died by this time.

ZizerFN: see Zitzer.

ZoegerFN: said by the Seelmann FSL to be fromUC Speyer, [Kur-]Pfalz[sic].  I did not locate them or any descendants in Mai1798.

ZoellnerFN{Johanne Christiane}: married Teich/Deich/Thiede(?)FN{David} in Rosslau 8 April 1766 (Mai&Marquardt#919, KS124).  They arrived in Russia 4 July 1766 (Kulberg1263).  Later in 1766 in Oranienbaum they took ship for the Volga (T5374-5375).  By 7 June 1767 they had settled at Orlovskaya FSL #49.   In 1798 he may be listed as Thiede{Johann} with a Mueller  wife {Maria} (Mai1798:Or40)?

ZoellnerFN{Gottfried & Wilhelmine}: said by the Orlovskaya FSL #11a to be step-children living in the Goldorf family (#11) which would indicate that frau Goldorf{Sophia} might previously have been a frau Zoellner.  By 1798 {Wilhelmine} had become the (3rd?) wife of Hank{Christian} (Mai1798:Or37).

ZoellnerFN{Friedrika} said by the 1798 Orlovskaya census to be the maiden name o f [the 3rd?] wife of  Hank{Christian} (Mai1798:Or36).

Zoellner{Henrijetta Wilh. Friederike}: married Leigs{Christoph} in Rosslau 9 April 1766 (Mai&Marquardt#930).  KS142 mistakenly said the year was 1765.  I did not find this couple in any later record.

ZoellnitzGL, [Anhalt-Dessau Principality]: this is now Sollnitz some 5 miles SE of Dessau city, and said by the Orlovskaya FSL to be homeUC to a Kessler family.  Kuhlberg said this was in the state of Dessau.

ZornFN{Benedict}:  said by the Volmer FSL (#42) to be from Gernsheim, Kurmainz.  Using Gersheim parish records, Brent Mai proved he was born in Gersheim 1 March 1738.  Brent also says he married in Landau-in-der-Pfalz on 4 February 1764 to Kuehnberger{Margaretha}, but his source for that statement is unclear in http://cvgs.cu-portland.edu/origins/z/zorn_volmer.cfm.

Later in 1766 they took transport for the Volga (T3175-3176).  By Sept. 1767 they had settled in Jagodnaja Poljana FSL #46, the Pleve version of which said he was fromUC Erbach (now in the state of Hessen) while the Kromm version said he was fromUC Heikelheim, Erbach County (pp.30, 34).  KS165 says he was fromUC Brensbach near Dieburg in Hessen.  Brent Mai says he was born 28 March 1744 in Brensbach, but gives no source for this statement (http://cvgs.cu-portland.edu/origins/z/zirckgiebel_yagodnaya_polyana.cfm).  For 1798 see Mai1798:Yp46.

ZuerichGL, Schweiz: is 92 miles SSE of Strassburg, and said by the Katharinenstadt FSL to be homeUC to Gattinger, Kuehn, and Spory families.

ZuerichVV (aka Eckardt, Eckert, Eckhardt and Sorkino): a Lutheran German colony founded in 1767, moved in 1770, on the western side of the Volga river not far from Basel and Wittmann.  To the best of my knowledge no copy of its First Settlers’ List has been found and published.  Anyone learning of such a document, please let us know immediately.  However, we have origin information on a few of its first or nearly first settlers – this information is available in “Kolonisten des Lokators Beauregard, die voruebergehend in anderen Kolonien angesiedelt wuerden” in pages 349-380 of Pleve, Einwanderung …, vol.4. The numbers in parens below indicate the position of a family in that list, identified in this Index as Lk.  In addition, we have names of some who probably were first settlers here because either (1) other colonies said they moved in from Zuerich or they were living in Zuerich in 1798 – and in both cases I found no record saying they had moved from any other village to Zuerich, and they were not found in any printed FSL; such families are listed below as ‘of unknown origin’ and have no number in parens following their name.  Placenames in italics are taken from Kuhlberg lists as printed in the Pleve books.

ZuernFN:  listed in the Bergdorf 1858 census (KS:668) as Zirp/Zuern?without origin.  The GCRA, using FHL(1,240,200) proved that Zuern is the correct name, originating in Adolzfurt, Oehringen [Amt], Wuerttemberg.

ZuernFN: settled in 1821 in Gueldendorf, Odessa, family records found by Curt Renz in Balingen, Balingen parish, Wuerttemberg.  Stumpp had this name as Zirre.

Zueschen, Hessen-Kassel [Landgraviate]: is 23 km SW of Kassel city and was said by the Seelmann FSL to be homeUC to Rundau{Johann}.

Zug Canton, Switzerland: said by the Kromm version of the Jagodnaja Poljana FSL to be homeUC to a Zentner man who was sent here as an 1812 prisoner of war (p.35).

ZugVV (aka Gattung, Maruenskoje): a Roman Catholic German colony founded in 1767, moved in 1770, on the eastern side of the Volga river not far from Schoenchen.  To the best of my knowledge no copy of its First Settlers’ List has been found and published.  Anyone learning of such a document, please let us know immediately.  However, we have origin information on a few of its first or nearly first settlers – this information is available  in “Kolonisten des Lokators Beauregard, die voruebergehend in anderen Kolonien angesiedelt wuerden” in pages 349-380 of Pleve, Einwanderung …, vol.4. The numbers in parens below indicate the position of a family in that list, identified in this Index as Lk.  In addition, I have identified two sets of names of others who possibly, or probably, were Zug first settlers.  One set is composed of those listed in the Zug 1798 census, and, though old enough, were not found in any other colony’s FSL, and were not listed in the 1780-1797 “movement tables” as coming from some other colony to Zug (those tables are preserved in Mai1798).  A second  much smaller set is composed of those listed in some other colony’s 1798 census with the notation they had “come from Zug” with no indication anywhere that they had  earlier been  in any other colony prior to Zug.  I consider families in both sets as prime Zug first settler suspects. In the following list the colony’s initials and household number where they were found in 1798 are noted.  Placenames in italics are taken from Kuhlberg lists as printed in the book Pleve edited:

Together they probably were among Beideck’s First Settlers.  She died prior to the 1798 census.
