Discussion & Documentation: 

Konrad Worms and his wife Anna Maria arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 10 August 1766 aboard the Russian pink Vologda under the command of Lieutenant Sergey Bartenyev.

They settled in the Volga German colony of Grimm and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 76.

In 1793, Nikolaus Worms moved from Grimm to Dinkel.

The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Konrad Worms was a farmer while the 1767 census records that he was a craftsman (Handwerker).

Both the Oranienbaum passenger list and the 1767 census record that Konrad Worms came from the German region of Laubach.
