Thank you for visiting the website of the American Historical Society of Germans from Russia.

Established in 1968, as our Mission Statement declares.... The American Historical Society of Germans from Russia is an international organization dedicated to the discovery, collection, preservation, and dissemination of information related to the history, cultural heritage and genealogy of Germanic settlers in the Russian Empire and their descendants.

We have the largest repository of information on Germans from Russia in the Western Hemisphere. All German Russian settlement regions are represented in our library and museum collections.


AHSGR Board Members, Trustees, and Staff


AHSGR Headquarters will be CLOSED Sunday Jan 15th due to the ice storm predicted to hit Lincoln.  We value the safety of our visitors and employees and want everyone to remain safe and off the streets as recommended by local authorities and the National Weather service.  Please listen for updates on KFOR radio 1240 am regarding Monday's status.



Village Coordinators of the Month

Starting in January 2017, each month we will feature two of our Village Coordinators and their villages.  Our intent is to highlight the work that they do for AHSGR and to give our members an opportunity to become more familiar with the Village Coordinators. Click the title or the image to go to the page and get to know your Village Coordinators!
