Working on the Next Major Area of Settlements

Tuesdays have become map update day for us, but, alas, we have no updates to the existing maps this week.

Instead, Dennis has been head's down researching the next major area of German settlements.  This is an area we've not seen plotted out in Google maps anywhere before, so we're excited to be able to share it with you soon.  Dennis is 87 villages into it now, and he's on a roll, taking breaks for Toronto Blue Jays games, of course!

Dennis at work at his home in Medicine Hat, Alberta, measuring and calculating village coordinates for the next major region of German settlements.

About this Site

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.
