Notes: From Catherine to Khruschev by Dr. Adam Giesinger page 188, "In the years 1806/09 these immigrants in the district of Odessa established the settlement of Karlstal near Odessa." The Emigration from Germany to Russia in the Years 1763 – 1862 by Karl Stumpp page 86, "In the years 1806/19 these immigrants in the district of Odessa established the settlement of Karlstal on the estate of the Prussian cavalry officer Karl Vitsch; the 25 families were from Württemberg. In 1841 they founded Hoffnungstal in Bessarabia. In the years 1843-47, 75 additional families arrived from Worms, Glückstal, Bergdorf, Neudorf, Kassel, Hoffnungstal in the district of Odessa. A settlement, therefore, whose inhabitants all came from the Odessa area."

Early St. Petersburg reports reflect Karlstal families in the parish of Freudental.

Since the original founders of Hoffnungstal Bessarabia came from Karlstal, it is suggested that you refer to the Hoffnungstal Bessarabia newsletters.
