Note that the Russian Archives in Engels will not sell copies of original church records, but will create a report, in Russian, of requested information. If you request a search of church records, the search price must be paid regardless of whether they find any records, or not. You must pay for the search before they do the work.
If you are requesting a search for a specific person, and think you know the birth year, for an unknown reason the actual recorded birth may be different by one year from what people used as there birth year, after they immigrated to the US.
Saratov, in the past, has sold copies of original birth records. Pages of birth records contain from 6 to 10 births per page, but they cover up records not requested when the page is copied.
