FAREWELL TO RUSSIA
"Farewell to Russia" is the autobiography of Princess Lydia Volkonsky. Book is an eyewitness account of historical events from 1905 to 1946: : World War I, the Russian Revolution, the Russian Civil War, the Soviet-Polish War of 1920 and World War II. Nothing is fictionalized.
All Russia Family Tree
All Russia Family Tree is a kind of "Who is (and was) who in Russia"
site with display of family links. There will be more later. Eventually,
links, homepages and e-mail addresses and everything that relates to will
be turned into one united network. Our goal is to create a database with
all the family links. Now it is just the beginning of such a long way.
One can think it unbeleivable and unreachable, but everyone knows that
not long ago most the families in Russia had not less than 10 children.
Judging this information, how many people, do you think, were living in
Russia in the 15th century. We are all relatives, one way or another...
Things you can do free
Browse the database
Browse the database by selecting the beginning letters of the surname and then jumping from
one surname to another. Russian alphabet and pronunciation of Russian letters
is on the page "Surname list" Everything is in
Russian, but no one stops you to learn to read it.
If you can read Russian (or have a friend who can), have
cyrillic fonts installed on your computer, you are welcome.
If you don't know Russian and have no Russian-speaking
friends you can use this site the same way: every letter of the alphabet
opens with a table, where the beginnings of surnames are shown both in
Russian and in English. Go to the part you look for, where needed surname
is located, select and copy the part needed and then use online translation
service: it opens in a new window and you can use it on any page you like.
