Subject: Russian surname database

The Eastman newsletter today noted a Russian public affairs agency has put
up a website that is an all-Russia surname database.
This may be helpful for those with GB ancestors who migrated to Bukovina or
Galicia and whose towns ended up in Ukraine - Russia.
I don't know if the all-Russia designation includes Ukraine.

You should know the Russian first letter of your ancestor's name or else
explore the Russian alphabet to find it.
