   Partners showcasing the work of Miss Arina Dmitrovna Genkina.

   mother - a professional artist - and her father - a craftsman/goldsmith 
   and former Soviet hanggliding champion. 
   
   This online exhibition is a sampling of almost 50 pieces of her 
   extensive work, which ranges from the fanciful to the bizarre and is full of 
   intricate details.

Subject: Re: Russian Immigration to United States

I am looking for information for a paper that I and a group of students 
from California State University of Sacramento, Nursing Department are 
putting together with regards to how recent immigration of Russians to the 
United States affects the health care system.  If you have any information 
with regards to values, beliefs, statistical numbers, etc.  I would 
appreciate it.  Thanks Barbara Monico

Subject: I am trying to locate someone...

My name is Tiffany Bell.  I am trying to locate someone in Moscow.  I 
know you are in the States but, I thought you might know where to help me 
start.

His name is Maxim Ovchenko or Ovchenika (I'm not sure of spelling).  I 
met him 12/92 when my aunt was adopting a child from Russia.  His mother 
was the director of one of the orphanages.  I have a phone number which 
is 479-8849, but I have never been able to get through.  His mother's 
address at the orphanage is:

Dom Rebenka 23
Molodtsova 1B
Moscow, Russia 129221

She does not speak English however.

If someone you know can contact Maxim I would truly appreciate it.
My address is:

Tiffany Bell 
3020 Country Square Dr. #1134
Carrollton, Texas 75006
Phone: 214-417-1528
E-mail: tbell@ix.netcom.com

I know this is quite unorthodox, but I had no other ideas.

Thank you,
Tiffany
