Georg and Maria Dieterle - 1913 Immigration

We just finished a delightful week of research looking for our sister-in-law's grandparents' 1913 immigration from Russian Volga Valley German settlements to Idaho. We collected a few family newspaper obituaries, did some Ancestry.com searching, and put the results together in a 10 page PDF file for Dieterle family members.

Some of the best news was that we verified they came from the small Volga Valley province of Samara and their village was Neu-Weimar. They arrived at the Port of Baltimore on 31 Jan 1913 aboard the S.S. Brandenburg and took a train to Sugar City, Idaho. It was great to learn that their Dieterle surname was not changed at immigration and that there were three small families from the same village traveling together. Each of those families named a relative back in Russia - wonderful!

We posted our finished study along with the primary George Dieterle research files on our server for anyone interested:

Hope you enjoy the report. We encourage you to check out the Germans from Russia web pages we listed on page 8 of the paper. Those web sites are packed with rich Russian Volga Valley German history.

Let us know what you think...

    Wow, rich history. I found my inlaws were also from Neu Wiemar and came to Sugar City, then to Wiley Colorado and onto Burley Idaho. Best I can find it happened about 1911. They do not speak of it much. My wife never knew her heritage only that they were German. Name was Neuwirth and became Neiwert. Thanks for the great information. Don Holmes
