Russian Military Records Search

FAST Genealogy Service is offering Jewish genealogists research in a number of Russian language databases.

The databases are related to world War II and contain records on Red Army soldiers who were awarded and/or killed and missing in action. Some records were created decades after the war had ended.

The information contained in these records varies on a case by case basis.

In most cases, an image of an actual record is available.

There are millions of records in each database so we are asking to provide some vital information to enable the researchers correct identification of a person.

1. Surname, given name, all variants.
2. Years of life.
3. Birthplace.
4. Names of both parents, their city of residence before, during, and after the war.
5. Name of a spouse, the city of residence before, during, and after the war.

If some information is not known, the search is still possible, but it will be more time consuming.

For example, the database on killed or missing in action contains 15 entries with the surname Zimgorod, 716 Ratner entries, and almost 4800 Feldman entries.
