Hi Kenny, der All,
I am not lost, just inundated with community work.
I'll make a phone call to the archives and find out what is needed
and report back this week.
Last rime I spoke the the Engels Archive, I was told that it will be
open for "business" this autumn, meaning - Sept. Oct....
But I'll let you know more details soonest.
My Moscow cousin recently visited Engels and Saratov Archives,
and told me this - Engels is open and "preparing to start <business>

As treasurer of the 'Friends of the Volga Archives'
I will be going to Russia June 16th, I will be happy to give the Saratov
and Engels Archives any donations you wish to donate.
We have been generous in the past and all monies was used for book
restoration, there are still many in dire need of repair, if not
restored they will be sealed and will not be available for research.
For more information about this project goto:
This will probably be my last trip if my bride gets her way.
It usually takes up a day to get this done at each Archive as I have to
make an appointment with the Directors, get a tour of their facility,
then I have them write a letter to the 'Friends of the Volga Archives'
with each donor's name which I will then email to each donor.
Please make check out to Kenneth Stugart
My address is
4788 Candleberry Ave
Seal Beach, CA 90740-3036
in the memo space write Volga Archives
Please email me at the amount you are donating and
which Archive you wish your donation to go to.
I will let the list know the amount we collected as it progresses.
Make sure you give plenty of time for your donation to arrive at Seal
Beach no later than
as I will have to put them in the bank and then draw some crisp bills,
their banks will not take any defaced, damaged or noticeably used bills.
