Germans from Russia Heritage Collection

Whether you seek information on your family tree or the perfect kuchen recipe, NDSU Libraries' Germans from Russia Heritage Collection is a valuable resource. Since its inception in 1978, this privately funded, specialized archive has become one of the most comprehensive collections of German-Russian resources in the world.

The Germans from Russia Heritage Collection's mission is to collect, document, preserve, exhibit, translate, publish, promote, and make accessible resources on the culture, history, folklore, textiles and clothing, and foodways of the Germans from Russia. Their focus is on Bessarabian, Black Sea, Crimean, Dobrudscha and Volhynian Germans and their descendants in North Dakota and the Northern Plains.
