Willkommen!

Thank you for visiting the website of the American Historical Society of Germans from Russia.  Established in 1968, AHSGR 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.

Welcome from the AHSGR Board Members, Trustees, and Staff!

Village Coordinators of the Month

Every month we 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 VC's.  Click the title above to go to the page and get to know your Village Coordinators!
