Re: Database of diaries and letters #russia #translation

Thanks for sharing this, Tema.  I have saved in a file the names of my ancestors' towns in Cyrillic, so I was able to search for diary entries that mention those places.  

I also tried searching for references to my Moroz relatives in the diaries.  Unfortunately, the literal translation of Moroz is "frost," so I ended up with tons of diary entries referencing frost!
