The Schmidtberger Family

About Our Family Research

I am endeavoring to find information for my in-laws regarding family history that they have little or no knowledge of and would like to investigate.
I have found out so far that my mother-in-law's father, Michael Schmidtberger came to America on board the ship Musel with other German families that had been living in Russia. The families had been asked by Catherine the Great to come to Russia as skilled artisans and craftsman. After her death and the growing hostility from native Russians, the families felt that is was time to leave.
