The following article will catalogue many key differences between the Russian America timeline and our own timeline (OTL). To make it easier for all to understand what is being said, this article will be written outside the canon of the timeline.


This timeline will focus completely on real people from OTL (as opposed to fictitious characters). This is achieved by researching the ancestries of individuals and placing these journeys within this alternate reality.

Alternate Alaskans

There will also exist a sizable minority of those where were descended from Slavs, Orthodox Christians, subjects of the former Russian Empire, British colonists of the Pacific Northwest, as well as a few Germanic and Asiatic peoples.
