QUEST FOR ANCESTORS
1812 CENSUS OF SULZ, BERESAN
These are the families listed in the 1812 Census of Sulz. This was compiled by Fr. Conrad Keller and printed in an old "Kalenderbuch" dated circa 1912-1914 as part of the 100 year Jubilee of the Catholic villages in the Beresan District of South Russia.
The original copy of the publication belonged to Karl Berger and was occasionally brought out and shared with his visiting granddaughter, Vera Berger Hoff, when she was a teenager.
Years later, she made a copy of this and has now graciously donated the information to the researchers of the Beresan villages listed within. Peter Mock and Roland Wagner have donated their time in the translation of the German version into English. The household listings were originally in numerical order, and for ease of searching, I have rearranged the households alphabetically.
