25 April 1801 List of single Mennonites and families who were not landowners

GEDCOM Files . . .The data from this list is available both as a table showing the original data and as a database in the form of a gedcom file. To search the gedcom file most effectively I suggest researchers import the gedcom file into the Brother’s Keeper program and conduct searches using the name codes as found in Grandma database. The information about the 46 people from this list who are not included in the 1801 Chortitza Colony census is also included in the gedcom files of the merged1801-1802 Chortitza Colony censusdatabase and the gedcom file of the merged 1801-1814 Chortitza Colony documents database which are also available on this web site.

Extracted by Tim Janzen

This site makes available a list compiled on April 25, 1801 of single Mennonites and some families who were not landowners as well as those Mennonites who were living outside the Chortitza Colony. The original document was written in German and may be found on frames 1 to 7 of File #92 of the microfilm of selected files from Odessa Archives, Fund 6, Inventory 1.

A total of 124 people are listed from following villages: Chortitza, Schoenhorst, Neuenburg, Kronsweide, Einlage, and Rosenthal. The names of the people and the relationships of family members to each other are given, but their ages are not given with the exception of Isaac Kasdorf and his wife. The names of four men who were living outside of the Chortitza Colony are also given. Exact identification of some the people in this list is difficult due to the fact that their ages aren’t given, but comparison of this list to the 1801 Chortitza Colony census data reveals that 46 of the people found in this list are not listed in the 1801 Chortitza Colony census.

If you have any questions about any of this data feel free to contact me.
