Remarks:
Kreis - Tultscha (Tulcea)
from page 118 of Giesinger book: "As elsewhere among the German colonists in Russia, the population in the Bessarabian settlements grew rapidly, reaching more than 33,000 by 1861. As early as the 1840's there had been groups of landless from these colonies wandering about in search for land. Some of them had made their way across the western borders of Russia into the Balkans and eventually found new homes there. An example of such were the German villages of Atamagea, Kataloi and Ciucurova in the Dobruja, which were founded in the years of 1848-1858 by wandering Bessarabians
