Maybe I'm off base here but I came to this posting to find out about information relating to events for the 400th anniversary of the Romanov dynasty. The majority of postings have nothing to do with this. Anyways, do I need to start a new topic or can we use this one for events taking place in 2013. I'm particularly looking for events in the United States. I hope to get to the Hillwood Museum.
Several State Archives in Russia have announced a joint project to put more of the documents in their collections on line, as reported by Paul Gilbert:http://tinyurl.com/mb86ffv
