It was an interesting dossier/fond but no ancestor.
By the way, the name of my maternal family "Hide ", causes difficulties in Russian. I know from my grandmother that is was sometimes pronounced as Gide. In the English translation on this site/forum the name is changed in the verb " to hide ".
Still 2 questions: - where there official Russian death certificates in that period?
- is it useful to send a letter to the Smolensky cemetery or an other archive?
Any suggestion would be helpful.
