    Greetings

    I'm an American living in north Idaho. I've recently become interested in my roots beyond America, and have started to do research. My great grandfather emigrated to Ohio around 1890. He was German and spoke German, yet he came here from Russia.

    My research on Germans coming from Russia in that time frame leads me to suspect Volga German.

    I look forward to interacting with everyone.

    Welcome, Chadvonlind
    Life is like a fire hydrant- sometimes you help people put out their fires, but most of the time you just get peed on by every dog in the neighborhood.

    Welcome here, chadvonlind. The Germans in Russia are collectively known as Russia Germans. The Volga Germans are the most famous and known of them. We've some threads about them here. I hope you enjoy the stay and find the forum useful for your interests.

    Thanks Everyone.

    Siebenbürgerin - I tried searching the forums for Russian Germans, and haven't found anything of use. Do you have any suggested threads?

    That's around the time when my ancestors started immigrating to America. Welcome to Skadi!
