Germans from Russia - Elizabeth Scott

Elizabeth will discuss the unique cultural habits and immigration patterns of Germans who immigrated into America from Russia in the 19th and 20th century.  Known as, Germans from Russia, they originally settled in the Ukraine area of Russia at the invitation of Czarina Catherine the Great and subsequent Czars.  As their situation became dangerous in Russia and their way of life was threatened, they moved to South America and the US, where  large concentrations settled in the Dakotas and Great Plains states, and they still hold many traditional customs and values.
 
In-Person meeting only
 
About Elizabeth:
Sparked by family hints about a couple of interesting ancestors, Elizabeth Scott has been researching her geneology for 15 years. Activity in local chapters of Germans from Russia Heritage Society (GRHS) and American Historical Society of Germans from Russia (AHSGR) has led to her increased knowledge of this unique cultural group of Americans.
