Hopefully some of our resident Russians and Ukrainians (who are really Russians too) will be of help.
:) I am hoping lol I put them away for a while, cause to stare at them would be torture.
Hi Pat, I have the same problem. I went to the Polish Archives and got the original records written in Russian for my family. Could possibly have someone, but I am still looking myself.
I sympathize. I tried to learn. but no dice. its very hard to distinguish when a word begins
or ends in some of these.
at least in polish i can see where the word ended and even the older records were not difficult to
read. hard to look at because of the ink/smearing etc. but you could tell where a sentence begins
at one point I had 52 of them. so if I can get thru these with some help I will be doing good.
