I took a look at the site but I'm not sure where to post my query there.  I have a close DNA cousin whose family was from Moscow.  He knows that his grandmother was an Okun, my maternal line, and that her father's name was Gamshei.  This is from his grandmother's marriage certificate.  He believes that both his grandmother and great grandfather were always in Moscow but I have my doubts.  His grandmother married a career military man and I think they might have meet elsewhere and then moved to Moscow since military service was one of the reasons that Jews could live beyond the Pale. I'm looking for any records I can find for her (Ester Gamshieve Okun Kanfel) or her father in Moscow or any other Russian archives. What Forum category would you suggest?
