Thank you again for all the advise and help with my Dietrich research, which is ongoing.
Thanks to Linda Sohl for providing the link to the site with the Kula family book. Of
course I automatically checked for Dietrichs and to my surprise I found:
D I E T R I C H 03174 DITRICH Burghard; evangelisch-lutherisch oo 14.10.1788 Kula QUERIN
Christina; kath., puella
However I find to further record of either Burghard or Chirstina in Kula.
A little background refresher. My great great grandfather's church death record in
Neuburg, Grossliebental District of Odessa says he was born in Kis-ker, Hungary in 1793.
There is no record in the two Kischker family books by Noee and Gerber, other than Noee
mentioning a third Dietrich family. I'm now assuming that this would be the family
mentioned in the Sammelwerk by Stader. Stader's source was the book, by Lotz,
"Unforgetable Kishker" that says Michael Dietrich (from Hirschfeld Pfalz) came
to Kischker with wife Marg. and two sons Matthias and Burghard. I found the birth record
of Johann Burghard, born in Irmenach, Pfalz to Michael and Maria Gertrude in 1769. This
would be the correct year for my 3 x great grandfather Johann, though in Neuburg he was
never Burghard, only Johann and his wife was Katharina, not Christina. So the family would
have been Kischker from 1785 to about 1806.
Now here is another interesting fact, Kischker initially had a number of Catholic families
(as written in "Unforgettable Kischker"), though most were Lutheran. The
Catholic families would all soon move away to other towns. One of the those families was
the Querin family.
So, if anyone with the family books for neighboring villages in the Batchka if you would
watch for any record of Burghard Dietrich I'd greatly appreciate it.
Johann Burghard Dietrich may, or may not be my family but it would be nice to find some
proof, one way or the other.
