Germans from Russia Settlement Locations


About Them:

This is the home of the Germans from Russia Settlement Locations project. Its goal is to bring the past into the present, to follow the humans and record where they lived, and to plot where they lived by coordinates on modern online maps. It is inclusive of all ethnic Germans who uprooted from their homelands and heeded the call to colonize the Imperial Russian Empire and those who remained in the former Soviet states after it fell. The resulting maps from this project currently span the modern-day, independent countries of Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bulgaria, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Lithuania, Moldova, Poland, Romania, Russia, Tajikistan, Türkiye, Turkmenistan, Ukraine and Uzbekistan. This is a work in progress and a living document.
