Welcome to the Intermountain Chapter of AHSGR. We hope that this will prove to be an effective way to share information and communicate with each other. This is designed to help us in our effort to research and celebrate our common heritage.
This was so interesting to me. When our Germans from Russia ancestors settled in Lincoln, Nebraska, they settled in the bottoms. It was an area that was in the flood plain, so they were occasionally flooded. They settled there because the land was cheaper. Their lots were very narrow because two houses would share a single lot to save money. I loved seeing the tidy little homes built by them.
