History of the Black Hills GRHS Chapter

The Black Hills Germans from Russia Heritage Society Chapter was chartered on 10 July 1993 as the 29th Chapter of the Germans from Russia Heritage Society. This chapter is located in Rapid City SD and was organized by descendants of Germans from Russia who moved to western South Dakota to live and work in the Black Hills area. We meet as a chapter to learn about and preserve the proud heritage, history and culture of our ancestors who pioneered on several continents. Many of the members of our chapter were born and grew up in rural communities across the Northern Plains of the United States.
