Introducing “Bending Curtain: A Changing Tide in Genealogy in the Former USSR”

For more than 8 years, I have focused on my journey to research my ancestors from Ukraine and Russia. My journey has made me wonder about what it’s like for people from the former USSR to do the same.

Now, you and I will have those answers. Several people from the former USSR have agreed to answer questions about their journey to research their ancestry.

Each of them have different and amazing stories to tell for my series, “Bending Curtain: A Changing Tide in Genealogy in the Former USSR”. My hope is to give inspiration from seeing the challenges and successes of people from the former USSR.

The series will continue throughout 2020, while I continue to write about my journey in genealogy and the latest databases and resources available in researching in the former USSR.

2020 on Find Lost Russian and Ukrainian Family will be a more thought provoking year for those researching in the former USSR. The other side of Russian and Ukrainian genealogy will be finally told here.
