Title: Anyone know if this book is available in English, please?
Post by: BingandNelsonFan on September 26, 2017, 05:07:27 PM
Hi! I am trying to do family research on the family of Prince Sergei Borisovich Stcherbatov and Elizaveta Plautin, particularly their son, Boris Sergeyevich Stcherbatov (1897-1920).

I live in the USA and don't speak Russian (though I'm pretty good at using online translators, now!). I came across a PDF which quotes the book shown at this site:
http://ru-history.livejournal.com/255147.html

This was a cousin of Boris, and he mentions him. I'm wondering if anyone knows whether this book is available in English?

Thanks!
Sarah

Hi Sarah,

I'd be shocked if this  book is available in English--I know I've never seen it.  As you probably know, it's very difficult to find quality English-language books on non-NAOTMAA Romanovs, never mind on the Russian nobility...

Thanks. I was afraid of that. :)
By any chance, does anyone on this forum have the book in Russian? Apparently, there is at least one picture of Boris Sergeyevich Stcherbatov (1897-1920) in there, and I would sure appreciate a scan of that. Also, if anyone could have a look and see if there is a mention of that Boris, I'd be so appreciative.

It is sad that there is so little available in English. I am working to put the story of Sergey and Elizaveta Stcherbatov and their children online in English. :)
Thank you!
Sarah

As you are in the US, can you access the book online:

Also have you seen this article? You could try to contact the authors through the site:
