The purpose of the American Historical Society of Germans from Russia is to bring together people interested in the history of Germans from Russia. Through a better understanding of Germans from Russia, we will promote a better appreciation of their history and the preservation of their culture through their descendants.
The Central Oklahoma Chapter of AHSGR sponsors 2 scholarships annually of $1000 to children of Germans from Russia. We sponsor two fundraisers for our Scholarship Fund; 1) sale of cookbooks (see link on left) and 2) an annual quilt raffle with tickets sold at all of our meetings during the year. Our General Fund is supported by membership dues, donations, and the sale of the booklet, “The Other Germans: Settlements of Germans from Russia in Oklahoma and Texas” (see link on left).
We have had a good Allstate convention with good participation of over 50 members and guests. All enjoyed the cooking demonstrations and our speakers. The food was great. We hope to publish the video of the cooking demos on this site and on our Facebook site.
Our Fall Harvestfest was also well attended, again with over 50 members and guests. A great time was enjoyed by all. The Kelln family recipe sausage prepared for us by Homeland groceries was a delight.
