My name is <Stanley L. Fidge > and I am the son of Geraldine M. Job and (Ottis N. Fidge), Geraldine M. Job is the daughter of Ludwig and Magda (Egerdahl (Kristiansen-Lind)) Job. Ludwig Job (my grandfather) is the son of Jacob and Eva Job (Jopp) (my great grandfather) who immigrated to the U.S. and acquired 160 acres of farmland east of Jud, North Dakota from the 2nd U.S. Homestead Act of 1912. Jacob Job (Jopp) (my great grandfather) immigrated from modern day Ukraine near Odessa along the Black Sea to the United States of America in December of 1911. Jacob Job is the son of Ludwig and Katharina Job (Jopp) (my great-great grandfather) from modern day Ukraine near Odessa along the Black Sea who are decendents from the Job (Jopp) family surname in Germany who immigrated from Southern Germany to modern day Ukraine from the late 1700's - mid 1800's based upon the Edict of Catherine the Great from Russia in 1763. I started this family tree for the German-Russian surname of Job (Jopp).
