About the Job surname

My name is <Stanley L. Fidge > MSIA-UPE, CISSP, GSLC, GSTRT, GLEG, GCCC, and Security+ and I am the son of Geraldine M. Job and (Ottis N. Fidge). Geraldine M. Job (my Mother) is the daughter of Ludwig and Magda (Egerdahl-Kristiansen) Job (Jopp) who married on October 2, 1940. Geraldine M. Job (My Mother) obtained her Bachelor of Arts degree from Indian River State College in Business Administration with a major in Marketing. Ludwig Job (my grandfather) bought farm land and established a homestead and farmed 640 acres near Nortonville, North Dakota. Ludwig Job (my grandfather) is the son of Jacob and Eva (Mayer) Job (Jopp) (my great grandfather) who immigrated from Odessa, Ukraine along the Blacksea (Russia) to St. Francis, Kansas USA on May 10, 1911 and then relocated to buy farm land and establish a homestead near Streeter, North Dakota USA in December of 1911. Jacob Job (my great grandfather) also acquired 160 acres of farmland east of Jud, North Dakota from the 2nd U.S. Homestead Act of 1912. Jacob Job (my great grandfather) is the son of Ludwig and Katharina (Geigner) Job (Jopp) (my great-great grandfather) who were also from modern day Ukraine near Odessa along the Black Sea who are decendants from the Job (Jopp) family surname from Germany who immigrated from Germany to modern day Ukraine (Russia) along the Black Sea from the early 1800's based upon the Edict of Catherine the Great from Russia in 1763. In 1763, Catherine II (Catherine the Great, German born empress of Russia) sent agents into the German states for the purpose of recruiting German settlers for Russia's new territory along the Black Sea with the promise of free land, no taxes, and freedom of religion as long as the new territory was settled. Many Germans and other Europeans began flooding into the area, starting particularly after the Napoleanic wars (1803 through 1810). Hundreds of German colonies sprang up in a semi-circle around Odessa, now in modern-day Ukraine. By 1816, over 1,500 German families moved into and around the Black Sea near Odessa in modern-day Ukraine. However, due to impending war in Russia and the rise of communism, all that was achieved and promised to the German settlers by Catherine the Great was taken away. Jacob Job (Jopp) (my Great Grandfather) immigrated to the United States of America when he was 21 years old to escape the impending bulshevik revolution and Ludwig Job (Jopp) his father and (my great great grandfather) came to America with Jacob Job (Jopp) (my great grandfather) to arrange Jacob's first marriage to Eva (Mayer) Job (Jopp) whose family were also German's who immigrated to Odessa, Ukraine (Russia) and then to the United States in which there marraige was arranged by Jacob Jopp (Job) (my great great grandfather) and they were married in 1912 and had four children (Katherine, Ida, Eva, and Ludwig) (my grandfather). Ludwig Job (Jopp) (my great great grandfather) returned to Russia to bring back the rest of the Job (Jopp) family and was never heard from again. I started this family tree for the German-Russian surname of Job (Jopp) going back 1646 to Michael (Jopp) Job whose descendants immigrated from Ottersheim, Germersheim, rheinland Pfalz, Germany to Odessa, Ukraine (Russia) under the Edict of Catherine the Great and then to the United States of America at the initial start of the Bolshevik revolution before 1917 in which my Great Grandfather Jacob Job came to the United States to start a new life in May of 1911 with the same promises made from Catherine the Great, now realized via the U.S. Constitution's freedom of religion, free land to settlers (2nd homestead act of 1912), and no initial tax on free land for immigrants who lived on the land for at least 5 years, learned English, and became U.S. citizens by settling, improving, and peacefully living on 160 acres of land granted thru President Taft during the 2nd Homestead Act of 1912.
