how to leave a legacy


What do you want to be remembered for?

Have you ever asked yourself the question: What can I do that is special, that will be for future generations, and be appreciated for years to come?  Our parents, our grandparents, our ancestral families, by coming to America and Canada and South America,  from Russia, from western Europe, from everywhere in the world - that was something really special!  They left us their priceless legacies.  Now we must look to the future, to a legacy for our children, grandchildren, and generations beyond.  Will a part of our legacy be to help preserve those ethnic qualities of the German-Russian people, of which we are so justifiably proud?  Can we reach out to those of German-Russian heritage throughout the world and say we accepted the challenge?  Because of what we have done, will our German-Russian heritage live on?

 

Your Legacy

Since its founding in 1968, the members and friends of the American Historical Society of Germans from Russia, AHSGR, have embraced the tradition of generous giving to support the activities of the Society.  Because of this generosity, AHSGR has become the most extensive repository of German-Russian information outside of Russia.  The Society’s bookshelves, microfilm, card files, and archives have become an invaluable resource for both the scholarly historical researcher, and the dedicated family history buff.  But the surface has barely been scratched.  Ease of accessing this information is being improved constantly.  Rich and valuable treasures of information are yet to be tapped.    And we wonder what we can be remembered for?
