Just want to point out that reference to place of origin such as Odessa often generically referred to an entire region north of the Black Sea rather than to a specific location.

Was the family Lutheran? If so, then the address Zlatica gave you will help. More specifically, go to http://odessa3.org/search.html and use the first search box set for "St. Petersburg Archives"

I did not find your specific individuals in the list. They may be there under alternate spellings which you will have to try for yourself. Note that these records end in 1885 and some registrations for baptisms may have been missed or included in later years that are not available. Hopefully you also know the names of older siblings that might help to track down the parent's names.

Failing this specific pointer, you may want to contact http://www.grhs.org which specializes in Germanic research in this region.

Jerry
