I have just written an article on ways for families of emigres to trace their family tree back to Russia (see the main Russian culture site).
I'm very much a back-to-your-roots sort of person myself, but all my family stories are from Britain and Ireland. Some of those have been hard enough to uncover, especially in Ireland where so many records were destroyed.
If you have a story of tracing your Russian ancestors (or elsewhere!), please share it here, it's always interesting to hear those stories and may inspire someone else to look into their tree
