  • Working with Russian Archival Documents
    In continuation of my previously published guide Working with Russian Archival Documents, I am carrying out a project on the comprehension of archival documents and Russian handwriting. My intention is to extend this guide by offering the analysis of more types of Russian archival documents.
    I collect samples of Russian documents written by peculiar hand (original and copies) and will be grateful for any contributions. Please contact me by e-mail or by regular mail.
  • Russian Provincial Noblewomen in Public and in Private (1700-1850).
