Our ancestors' historic and often perilous migratory journey in the early 1800s took them from their homes in Germany, Alsace, Poland, and Hungary to the Black Sea region of South Russia (now Ukraine). Their subsequent journeys led them to the plains of the United States, Canada, South America, and elsewhere around the globe.

Inspired by our genealogy mentor, Dale Wahl, we're committed to the following:

Free Research

* A searchable database of more than 660 trees with over 2.6 million names

* A searchable Research Repository with over 2,400 research documents (PDF/HTML)

* Maps (over 440) and photos (over 3,000) of the region and environment of our ancestors

 

 

Connecting German-Russian researchers worldwide

* Submit your own GEDCOM to the database and connect with others

* Chat with fellow researchers, inquire about culture, history, etc. 

* Share your travel or family photos on our Facebook page

* Visit ancestral villages (virtual or in person)


We think this is a good place to get started on your search. Grab the beverage of your choice, a comfy chair, and start searching for your family!
