The focus of the American Historical Society of Germans from Russia Obituary Collection is original Germans from Russia immigrants and their descendants who were predominantly of German from Russia ancestry. These obituaries were collected and digitized by AHSGR, then sent to Family Search for indexing and access. AHSGR’s Obituary Collection is available to search, view, and download on

AHSGR no longer adds new obituaries to this collection since we are now over 100 years past the arrival of most German from Russia immigrants.  In addition, obituaries are widely available from other on-line resources such as newspaper and funeral homes websites.
