While completing my research, I have found a number of organizations to be very helpful. I highly recommend the following groups:

 

1) I am a member of the AMERICAN HISTORICAL SOCIETY of GERMANS FROM RUSSIA -AHSGR. While I am also a national member out of Lincoln, Nebraska, this link is to the local chapter I belong to in Fresno, California. If you are only going to join one group, this is the one!

2) Another very informative and helpful organization is the GERMANS FROM RUSSIA HERITAGE SOCIETY .

GRHS

3) A large amount of ancestral information can be found at the LDS Church site of FAMILYSEARCH.ORG

FAMILYSEARCH.ORG

4) A very good site on immigration into the United States is THE STATUE OF LIBERTY-ELLIS ISLAND FOUNDATION.

ELLISISLAND.ORG

5) Another site for even earlier immigration is THE BATTERY CONSERVANCY.

CASTLEGARDEN.ORG

6) Another site for immigration thru Galveston is THE TEXAS SEAPORT MUSEUM.

7) As for commercial sites, I use one more than all the others. I will be the first to say that it can get expensive very quickly. The site is ANCESTRY.COM .

8) To help support "A Landmark Study of the Human Journey," see the site of THE NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC GENOGRAPHIC PROJECT.

9) For more advanced DNA research, I recommend FAMILY TREE DNA.
