The Central Oklahoma Chapter is based in Oklahoma City and is the largest and most active AHSGR chapter in the state.
Our usual chapter meetings feature speakers, presentations, or movies at Our Lord’s Lutheran Church, 2900 West Hefner Road, Oklahoma City, OK, 73120. We occasionally have special meetings at other announced locations.
We have an all-state meeting in August or September each year, with members from other chapters and non-members. We have potluck dinners with a couple of our meetings, such as when we celebrate our “Founders Day” in the spring and Christmas in December.
We have members representing most faith groups that settled the Russian Empire (Catholic, Lutheran, Mennonite, and Evangelical Congregationalist) and whose ancestors came from areas such as the Volga, Ukraine, Black Sea, Volhynia, Bessarabia, and the Caucasus areas.
We are descendants of Germanic settlers in the Imperial Russian Empire that settled from the time of Catherine the Great circa 1763 to the latter 1800s. We share our traditions, food, music, and family histories with each other.
Our chapter also awards two (2) $1000 scholarships to descendants of Germans from Russia. See details on out facebook page.
