AHSGR began to publish Work Papers in 1969 to share reports, sources of genealogical research, bibliographies, lists of books donated to the AHSGR archives and other pertinent information. In 1978, Work Papers was renamed the Journal of the American Historical Society of Germans From Russia. From 1978 through 1982 the Journal was published three times annually. Since 1982 there have been four issues each year.
