Karaulov family

Hi - I´m trying to research this family - some of its members ended up in Ireland after the revolution.  Any assistance would be much appreciated.  Thanks

Okie dokie, darius im not sure if your still hunting for info on this but i found this at the website below it:
"Provisional Committee

On February 27 (March 12), 1917, the Duma is called into session on the appeals of Councillor of State Rodzianko, who is desperately trying to save the Empire despite the extraordinary momentum of the February Revolution. At 4pm the Duma resolves to create the Provisional Committee of the State Duma. Its members are among the biggest landowners and most wealthy capitalists in Russia:
 
M.V. Rodzianko (Octobrist); V.V. Shulgin; V.N. Lvov; I.I. Dmitryukov (Octobrist); S.I. Shidlovsky (Octobrist); M.A. Karaulov; A.F. Kerensky (Labour Party); A.I. Konovalav (Progressive); V.A. Rzhevsky (Progressive); A.A. Bublikov (Progressive); P.N. Milyukov (Cadet); N.V. Nekrasov (Cadet); and N.S. Chkheidze (Menshevik).
 
The Committee discusses whether they should assume power over the country, filling up the vacuum caused by the revolution and the Tsar's ineptitude. The Committee denies the move, and resolves that it must somewhow save the Tsar. The Committee resolves that the only path towards this is to share power between Tsar and a new Prime Minister. The despondent Tsar refuses this offer. The Committee then asks his brother Mikhail to assume the thrown, who also refuses.
 
On the following day, left without any other option, the Committee assumes power over the government. Along with the Petrograd Soviet, the Committee creates a new Provisional Government."
