Our diverse and fantastic community hail from all over the world! And I do mean all over the world. The map above provided by germansfromrussiasettlementlocations.org shows the originating villages founded in the then Russian lands.
The majority of the organizations that represent this diverse community are history, culture, and genealogy driven. Each group listed in the links area are each unique and cover a slightly different section of the community.
For the most basic description, we are the descendants of the people invited Catherine the Great or are the (maybe previously) German-speaking descendants that were displaced by major historical events.
