Genealogy Research

The game’s afoot! Whether you are a beginner with enthusiasm but no time, or someone who has reached a brick wall with the research you have already completed, Sherlock Combs can be on the case!

Because I can read Russian, and have access to ever increasing numbers of digitized documents from academic libraries in the former Soviet Union, I can find things from the Old Country that other people can’t.

 

Translation

Russian-language documents from the 19th and early 20th century are my specialty, both narrative and columnar formats. These include vital records (birth, marriage, divorce, death), reviski skazki (the equivalents to a U. S. Federal census), passports, and other types of documents.
