Russian immigrants are one of the least studied of all the Slavic peoples because of meager collections development. Tracking a Diaspora: Emigres from Russia and Eastern Europe in the Repositories offers librarians and archivists an abundance of fresh information describing previously unrealized and little-used archival collections on Russian emigres. Some of these resources have been only recently acquired or opened to the public, providing rich new avenues of research for scholars and historians. This unique source provides access to greater breadth and depth of knowledge of Russian and Eastern European immigrants, their backgrounds, and their experiences coming to the United States.

Tracking a Diaspora is not only a helpful new resource to specialists but also serves as an introduction to archival research for amateur genealogists and scholars. Chapters comprehensively describe a single repository, thorough descriptions of a single collection, or offer thematic overviews, such as the theme of German emigration from Russia. The text includes detailed notes, references, figures and tables, and photographs.

Tracking a Diaspora describes largely unknown collections, including:
a major group of archival collections that reveals more on these immigrants and their assimilation problems
the holdings of the museum, libraries, and archives of Holy Trinity Orthodox Seminary in upstate New York
the archives of the Synod of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia
the archives and Lembich library at The Tolstoy Foundation, Inc., New York
the Archives of the Orthodox Church in America
the manuscript collections at the Historical Society of Pennsylvania (HSP)
materials on the immigrants who settled in the Midwest
six archival collections acquired by the State Archive of the Russian Federation
the Andre Savine collection at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, North Carolina
and more!

Tracking a Diaspora is of great interest to librarians, archivists, specialists in Russian history, and specialists in ethnic and immigration history.
