Information from Suzanne Heinitz-Dodge

Ger-Volga is a mailing list to help you communicate with others who have similar interests: in our case it would be researching our Volga German ancestors. Nearly every day someone will post something that is useful, interesting, and usually helpful. This list is always filled with interesting and sometimes painful things that our ancestors were forced to endure. Luckily, for most of us, our particular ancestors made it to America before some of this suffering took place; but they all left other family members behind, at least for a while. Don't we want to know what happened to our aunts, uncles, cousins, etc? To subscribe to the list, send an email to Do not put anything in the subject line. In the message box of the email, type subscribe, that is all. You will be sent a confirmation, and instructions how to send emails to the list. Cheers!

May 30th Meeting

On Saturday the Intermountain Chapter of AHSGR held their May meeting. Goals and objectives of the chapter were discussed as well as the need to increase membership. Members briefly shared a story about their ancestors. As a culminating activity, a potluck lunch with several authentic German dishes was enjoyed by all. Spread the word about our new AHSGR chapter and bring someone new to the next meeting. Please check the updates on member resources and the village list.
