In today's Cyndislist is the following:
"Sources for genealogy in the archives of the former Soviet Union
by Vladislav Soshnikov
It is very difficult for modern genealogists to understand the types
of archival records created in the Russian Empire prior to 1917, which
may serve specifically as sources for genealogical information today.
The most important factor for understanding lies in the existence of a
class structure of the population formulated by Russian law. The
population of the empire was divided into these several class groups"
Is this the person that was working with AHSGR for a time?
