Jordanville, NY. May 1, 2015
The Foundation of Russian History, in conjunction with Staraya Basmannaya (Moscow, Russia), has published a new book titled Некрополь Свято-Троицкого монастыря в Джорданвилле (Necropolis of Holy Trinity Monastery in Jordanville). This reference work contains a complete listing of all the people who have been interred at Holy Trinity Monastery since its founding in 1930. Many of the entries are supplemented by biographical information gathered from genealogical reference books, the monastery archive, obituaries from Russian émigré periodicals and from relatives of the deceased. The book, written in Russian, contains approximately 2,500 entries and includes an alphabetical index of all names mentioned in this volume. Compiled by Rev. Vladimir von Tsurikov, the former director of the Foundation of Russian History, and Andrey Lyubimov, the Foundation’s library manager, this book is a valuable resource on the history of the Russian diaspora. It is available for purchase at the Holy Trinity Bookstore.
