Russian Regiment Warsaw
Posted by: Lori (ID *****2245) Date: May 26, 2014 at 08:05:55

My ancestor Johann Gottfried Potratz was born about 1780 in Dresow (now Drzezewo, Poland). In 1805 he was married on Wolin Island and this was attached to his record by a German cousin:

"gewesener Unteroffizier im Russischen Regiment in Warschau und Schullehrer in Dresow"

which I believe means, "has been commissioned officer in the Russian Regiment in Warsaw and is a school teacher in Dresow."

He married into a family from Wolin, which until about 1815 was part of Sweden. His children were all born on Wolin between 1806-1811.

I have googled the Russian Regiment without much success. Was it part of the Imperial Russian Army?
