All About Researching Soviet Awards

Recommended Posts

I got a mail from him too a few days back. He told me that the research for my Lenin is ready, but nothing new of my Nevsky. Man I hope they find something for this piece as it's the nicest of all soviet awards in my collection but unfortunately the only one that remains unresearched.

The Record Cards, Award Citations, and a couple of Service Records were received the other day for four of my Orders of the Red Star. . . I shall be posting them soon. . .

Just got word that Alexei can now do research with serial numbers only. Very fast, but VERY expensive.

That's what he says in his website :

"We can now do serial number research! Price is $***, which includes Award Record Card and Citation. In most cases results are obtained in under 10 days. Other items can be ordered through our regular channels for researching documented awards. "

10 days : that's fast !!! :jumping::jumping: But of course, the amount of money asked is quite huge...

Cheers.

Just when GK seems to be back in the game... Let's see if he continues to provide results, otherwise I might try Alexei for my higher awards.

I received a batch of research in December (after 324 days of waiting) and have emailed with GK earlier this month, but maybe my remark in general was premature... Let's just hope things will improve. And I hope I will find the time to scan and translate all of my documents... :(

Just got my first two returns from Alexei. They came in well under a week. While I think these are quite (QUITE) interesting results, they come without translations, so I am still looking for someone to do translations.

The normal Researcher has been traveling and is off to get involved, again, in an auction in Helsinki. Make of that what you will.

I have a channel that provides research by serial number within 5 days.

The price is 60$ and it includes Award Record Card and Citation.

For additional 25$ you will get Service Record Card and Picture of the recipient if he was an officer.

If someone interested, write me and I'll give you more information.

It appears it has been some time since anyone has posted to this topic. I tried a while back to get information about how to obtain a Soviet award card and have had no luck. I am trying to locate the award card for Soviet Marshall Kirill Moskalenko. If anyone can help me, or knows of someone I can contact for help I would be truly grateful.

Thank you!

You need to go through one of the researchers Auke (Ferdinand) is one that I use a lot :D he is really good in obtaining results :) and he should be able to know what is needed and how much the cost for obtaining his record card etc is :)

Igor, I tried, but his record card is not in the Central Archive. Somebody with access to the Main Personnel Directorate (GUK) Archive is needed.

I think all of his award numbers and Ukaz dates are listed in the book "Marshals and Admirals of the USSR", if I remember correctly. Might save you a dollar (or euro) or two...

Just thinking...I may have had Moskalenko's award card when I owned part of his group as well. I'll have to check my archives.....

Now the price is 15$ for Award Record Card by number.

As many of you are probably already aware there are a number of websites that are quite useful in researching recipients of Soviet awards during the Great Patriotic War if you know their name (and can read and type in Russian):

1. http://www.podvig-naroda.ru/?#tab=navHome - this site allows one to download the приказ and the наградной лист for each recipient.

2. http://www.obd-memorial.ru/html/index.html - which allows one to find the rank, unit, date of death, place of death, place of burial, and next of kin of those who died during the Great Patriotic War.
