    Our organization welcomes people who are interested in the Germans from Russia culture, heritage and history. As members of GRHS, we share family records, research archives for information, write historical articles and books, support libraries, and promote the production of films that give an accurate account of our forefathers who suffered hardships, political turmoil and strife in order to survive. We assist each other in our quest to know and understand our links to the settlers in Russia and to our roots in Western Europe.
