View Full Version : Karl Schmidt born 1799

I'm trying to verify the birth and family of Karl Schmidt. K-G Olin's work on Alaska, The Russian Era, states Schmidt was born 1799 to S. Schmidt, an officer in the Russian navy at Sveaborg, near Helsingfors/Helsinki. Karl Schmidt was commander of Fort Ross CA from 1820 till 1824. Does any one out there have additional info? I've searched TALKO and HISKI with no luck. Perhaps there is a separate database for the Russian navy during that period??
