The guide is available for $9.95 with free U.S. shipping on purchases of more than $25 on Amazon.com here. Purchases within the U.S.A. also are available through the publisher, Genealogical Publishing Co. (Contact me if Amazon won’t ship to your home outside of the USA and Canada. I have copies available for international purchases.)
Topics such as Russian names, conversion to the Gregorian calendar, locating Russian ancestral places, metric books, censuses, archives, Russian consular records, online databases (not the ones listed everywhere else), the Russian alphabet and more complete the guide on Russian genealogy.
Thanks to the publishing of the Russian genealogy guide, more major news is on the way. Follow this blog with the top right button. It’s worth the wait.
Plus since April, I have been working on a major project. I hope to announce it by late August or September, but hopefully earlier.
In the meantime, I have made updates to three pages on this blog.
The Free Databases page is completely updated with every database that has been featured on this blog over the almost 10 years. The blog post that explains how to use each database are linked in the same paragraph as the listed database.
Also, the Facebook Genealogy page has been renamed to Genealogy on Facebook. That page is updated with many more Facebook genealogy groups for Russian and Ukrainian genealogy, in addition to the other areas of eastern Europe.
The number of groups added to the page shows that genealogy is growing for those with Russian and Ukrainian ancestors.
And finally, Links to Resources has several more resources added to the page.
I am thinking of more resources and topics to cover on this blog. I have hope more online resources will continue to come after learning in May that Russian officials announced “Electronic Library of the Cossacks” is on its way. Read the news here. Yes, the link is translated into English.
Stay tuned to this blog to keep up with all the news related to Russian and Ukrainian genealogy.
