The Southern California Chapter of Germans from Russia is formed of people who are descended from Germans who had migrated to Russia and thence to the western hemisphere. Members of the Southern California Chapter belong to the Germans from Russia Heritage Society (GRHS) and/or to the American Historical Society of Germans from Russia (AHSGR).

We research our heritage and find that the camaraderie and assistance available in a group setting helps us in our quest. The chapter also invites interested friends.

The Chapter publishes newsletters and has luncheon meetings throughout the year at a restaurant serving mostly German food. At these meetings speakers are scheduled who present many aspects of genealogical pursuits specifically related to our Germans from Russia heritage.

Meetings are held on the 3rd Saturday of odd numbered months. National conventions of all chapters in the United States and Canada are held yearly.
