Our Chapter’s Purpose

Our Chapter was formed in 1972 in order to reach out to those Germans from Russia who live in the greater Saginaw Valley region. The Chapter encourages historical interest and genealogical research as well as fellowship at our meetings throughout the year.

There are planned programs for each meeting as well as time for fellowship. Refreshments are served and a free will donation is asked.

Chapter Library

We have a collection of Germans from Russia books and other materials of interest. These include historical books, maps, and other genealogical resource books available to our membership. A selection from our library collection is usually available at our chapter meetings. Members may check out and return at the meetings or by contacting our librarians.
