I have created a helpful blog at http://lostrussianfamily.wordpress.com/http://lostrussianfamily.wordpress.com/. I finally found a relative who was missing for 66 years. I have lots of advice and information to offer. My background is in investigative journalism, which has been a great asset.
Please check out my blog. I will be posting several times a week.
If you have some great successes in genealogy or finding family, I will post the articles on my blog.
