The Basgall bloodline is very unique. It’s unique because it starts with the union of a French man who had traveled many miles to meet a young Russian woman.
|Basgall Immigrants to the United States|
Together by invitation of Catherine the Great they traveled to the wilderness of the Volga River Region of Russia and started an Ancestry that is now 11 generations and growing. This union of a French man and a Soviet woman was the start of German Volga Immigration that started to Russia around 1765 and 100 years latter expanded to the United States, Brazil and Argentina.

May this Web Page become the gathering place for Basgall’s from around the world? Chapter 1 is now on the Basgall Page.
