Wow. Marvelous material! Thanks Dave!! :cheers:

It as important to understand issues of context and procedure as addressed in your essay as to understand the Russian texts in our efforts to make sense of these awards and their arcival sources.

Thanks again!! :beer:

Thanks for that information Dave as a fledgling to collecting Soviet Awards. So you have a third party to collect the information personally from the records office? Pete

As research is a totally new world for me, I have a lot of questions. There is only one fellow who interfaces with the Archives? If I want to contact him, I can contact one of you for his name and contact details? Then the researcher knows what to do, he goes to the Archives and copies the Award Card en Citation for me? And I assume he wants something for his services too?

Thanks,

Auke

What are the non-military awards that can be researched?

How about prizes / distinguished titles?

Research of Soviet Labour Awards

What are the non-military awards that can be researched?

How about prizes / distinguished titles?

Dear Bob,

if you have access to the archives of the (former) Supreme Soviet, you might research nearly all of the Labour Orders, Prizes & Titles :cheeky: .

The fact is, that Gregory, who conducts the research of my Glory-group http://gmic.co.uk/index.php?showtopic=5536 , can do the research for lower-numbered (screwback) Labour Orders. Gregory is THE expert for researching Labour Awards. If you want, I can PM his mail-adress to you.

Best regards :beer:

Bob,

So did I, two days ago.

Yep - thanks. I guess I was almost expectin there to be more than just 1 person doing research - guess I was wrong.

To be honest I expected that too - why only one person who conducts the research for all of us? He must be a busy man...

It seems that currently there are a lot of intermediary's:

Alex: http://www.russian-awards.com/ResearchServices.htm

Alexei: http://home.netcom.com/%7Emerezhko/research.html

Eugene: http://www.russianglory.com

But do they all deal with Gregory? It seems that Alexei is really fast and provides scans instead of xerox copies:

Who knows more?

Dear Auke,

also researcher Gregory provides now scans and no more xerox copies, as you can see by the latest research of my Glory-Trio: http://gmic.co.uk/index.php?s=&showtop...st&p=198433 :D .

Best regards :beer:

Christian

To all:

Logistically, it's a lot easier to save a digital copy (should he receive additional requests for the same research) than it is to trudge on over to Podolsk for repeat hard copies. Digital age = greater efficiency = higher profit margins.

All:

It's back! Sorry for the vacation. :rolleyes:

Now, of course, I can't guarantee that you'll get back things in a timely manner, but hey - it's still worth a shot! This was the fun of collecting Soviet awards for me for over a decade.
