German Roots in Russia PGS
My passion for genealogy first started when my grandparents gave me a pedigree chart for my 14th birthday when I was living in Germany. I was hooked immediately, discovering interesting things about my own family like that one of my great grandfathers was not even related to me! I learned much about my ancestors who lived in Bessarabia, now Ukraine, for almost 130 years. Over the years, I have honed my knowledge in German-Russian Genealogy, tracing my own paternal ancestry back to 1580. I was able to gather information on more than 2600 descendants from a common Goehring ancestor who was born in Prussia in 1809. Moving to Canada in 2008, I was able to access information in the Provincial Archives of Saskatchewan and Alberta, local libraries and courthouses. With German as my native tongue, and intermediate knowledge of Russian and French, I am not limited to old documents written in English. I am an active member of the Germans from Russia Heritage Society in Bismarck, N.D. and the American Historical Society of Germans from Russia in Lincoln, NE where I act as the village coordinator of Beresina, Bessarabia. My passion for genealogy is here to help you in your quest to learn about your own German-Russian history!
