A Russian Archive
Well, well, well…my cousin has been doing some Ratz research, trying to find the origins of the Ratz family. He met someone who did a search and discovered there was some information from a Ukrainian Lutheran Church in the Russian Archives in St. Petersburg. He went to the LDS library to get the information ordered. Now the waiting part, which is the hardest to do, but I have to practice patience. Anyway, I am quiet grateful to Grand Duke Nicholas Mikhailovitch Romanov who started to get a Russian Archive organized before that unfortunate Revolution and his murder.
