The Canadian provinces of Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta, and the states of Washington, Oregon, California and others also have a smattering of German-Russians.

The German-Russians left Germany and traveled to Russia where they created an agricultural and industrial empire. Then, many of them left it all behind and started anew somewhere in the Americas.
