I also want to let you know that with the new Upload system, you may see information differently.  And if you have any issues or see mistakes, please let me know right away.

I will soon choose new sets of records to translate next half a year.  If anyone is interested to help us in translation/transcription projects, mostly from Russian, please let me know.  You would need to read Russian handwriting, be able to enter information into Excel table.

If you have questions about our group/website, please do not hesitate to email me.

All the best,
