Emigration Records[edit | edit source]

Emigration records list the names of people leaving and immigration records list those coming into Russia. There are passenger lists for ships coming into Russia and border-crossing records of people leaving for the United States or coming from the United States into Russia. These records may include an emigrant’s name, age, occupation, destination, and sometimes the place of origin or birth.

Most of these sources begin in the late 19th century. They can be very valuable for determining where your ancestor came from. They can also help you construct family groups.

If you don’t find your ancestor’s name, you may find emigration information on neighbors of your ancestor. Neighbors from the Caucasus often settled together in the United States and Canada (like the Doukabours and the Molokans).
