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.


Rather than creating fictional biographies, this timeline will focus completely on real people. This is achieved using the genealogical data on specific individuals of our timeline and reconstructing them to fit within the canon of the Russian America timeline.

Alaskan Criteria for Russian America

Ancestry of Alaskans.

Alaskans will primarily consist Americans, Canadians, and Mexicans whose ancestry goes back to the former Russian Empire. Non-Russians of Slavic and/or Eastern Orthodox descent would also have have a high chance of being Alaskan. Other likely groups would include East Asians, English (particularly British Columbians), and Scandinavians (to name a few).


Rather than going to Utah, virtually all Mormon pioneers would settle in Borealia. Because of this, most North American Mormons would be Borealians. The country would also include a large non-Mormon English population (by means of Western Canadians).

Canadians (Canadiens)

The Republic of Canada would consist primarily of the French-speaking population of Canada (OTL). There would also exist some Irish and Italian immigrants.


Because of its larger size and more stable economy, most Mexican Americans would remain Mexican. Mexico would also include a larger immigrant population, especially among those who immigrated through California in OTL (such as Irish and Italians).

South Africa

Most of the South African diaspora would remain in South Africa. The nation would also see a population increase in the form of Dutch and German immigration.
