Discussion & Documentation: 

Georg Winter, a farmer, and his family settled in the Volga German colony of Shcherbakovka on 15 June 1765. They are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 3.

The 1767 census records that Georg Winter came from the German town of Untermbach [?].

[The Eichhorns record that a Hans Georg Winter went first to Denmark (Schleswig-Holstein), but that individual does not match the Georg Winter who settled in Shcherbakovka.]
