Question about obtaining Death Records from St. Petersburg

stephen cohen
 

I was able to obtain a photograph of the headstone of my great great
grandmother, Rebecca Pinchuk, from the Jewish Cemetery in St.
Petersburg. Per the headstone, she died in 1933. I was wondering if
anyone knew if there are surviving death records for this time in St.
Petersburg. If so, would anyone know how to go about obtaining a
copy. Is there a Russian archive in St. Petersburg to contact?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
Stephen Cohen

If you don't know Russian you'll need to use Google Translate to render the page in English. You can register for free and then ask the question in English - I think many readers and organizers of the site know English. In Chrome, you can have the pages translated by default.
