Lambertus Beratz, a farmer, and his wife Albertina immigrated to Russia, arriving from Lübeck at the port in Oranienbaum on 4 July 1766 aboard the English frigate Love & Unity with skipper Thomas Fairfax at the helm.

They settled in the Volga German colony of Göbel on 20 July 1767 and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 49.

The 1767 census records that Lambertus Beratz came from the German village of Weisenau in the Kurmainz region.
