Hi Aaron,
Thank you. It does work. I just found myself and my family. It's kind of cool to see yourself in a database with all the other Jewish refugees. We came to the US after the 1980s. You have to click on HIAS database search tab to search. 
Once you find one of the people this way, you can then type the "case number" in the results into the "case number" field, while erasing other criteria.  Search based on the case number will show all members of the family.

For some reason, I'm unable to find folks who came through in the previous immigration wave in the 1970's.  Perhaps, the data has not been made available yet?

Hi David,
Unfortunately the immigration from Soviet Union (more than 600,000 Jew) is not tracking online

Hi David,

There is a good chance that Jewish Soviet immigrants at that time received assistance from HIAS.  As such, I suggest searching here (https://www.ajhs.org/hias-search) to see if there is a record.  Depending on how closely related you are, HIAS may be able to provide additional information.  If they naturalized, there is a chance you may be able to find a reference to their files on FamilySearch or Ancestry; however, given how recent it is, you may need to submit an index search request to the USCIS genealogy program.

Hopefully this helps and good luck in your search!
