Anna Dick Doerksen could trace her genealogy to great-great-grandparents Gerhard Doerksen (1742-1806) and Anna Fast (1743- 94) in Prussia: “… originally from Heuboden, but moving to the City of Danzig in 1766…”: courtesy of Henry Schapansky.
In 1825 her great-grandparents Gerhard Doerksens (1767-1837) emigrated to Russia with 5 sons. They settled in the village of Fischau, Molotschna, where they had acquired a block of 3 Wirtschaften by 1835.
