I love Russia & have visited St.Petersburg 3 times over the space of 2
years doing volunteer work in orphanages. It is my plan/desire to return
within the next 6 months to study russian. I have found in russian people
precious qualities that are not so common elsewhere  & I have good friends.
But I need a lot of help to understand more. If you  are interested in
communicating in simple russian or english about  unique russian culture,-
not just copied from the west,- art, literature, music,  dance, spiritual
values,- I would be very glad. Or just drop a little note.

Could you please provide me information about e-mail/internet access in

them use a computer somewhere else?

Could I pay to have an e-mail address established for them and then have
them retreive it at someone else's computer?  Do you know anyone in
Belgorod who might provide this service?  Thank you for any help you might
be able to provide.  Please reply and quote my telephone number.

Thanks once again.

Yours sincerely,

Does anyone know about Kalmyk websites (message boards or any other site of

Subject: Molokan Tambov Meeting, Aug 1-4


UPDATE ON:
-------
International Meeting of Molokans in Tambov, Russia
-----

12 Molokans from America will join many from Russia at the historic
Cardiological Sanatorium in central Tambov, August 1-4, to discuss their
past, present and future.  They will inspect the archives in Tambov to see
the original records of early arrrests and persecutions of the spiritual
christian dissenters of orthodoxy.  After the meeting many will visit some
of the 150 Molokan settlements and re-settlements concentrated in the
Northern Caucasus.  With help from Russians with e-mail, I will attempt to
post proceedings of this historic meeting and reports of the trip on the
new Molokan HomePage.  Check it out if you don't know the Molokans.

Subject: Reading Russian cyrillic Web pages

RESPONSE TO:
Sender:  john m swedberg

Dear Friends/Partners.....I've had my computer now for 7 or 8 months,
have visited every Russian-oriented web site I can find, but I still
have not found any information on how to translate KOI8, WIN, ALT and
all the heiroglyphics I find on the various pages.  It's always so nice
to find a transliteration, even though everyone seems to have their own
system.  And occasionally there's some honest-to-God Cyrillic, like on
Chertovy Kulichki.  How do I decode these things.  Pomogite mnye,
pozhaluyste.     jms
____

Download and install the KOI8 and CP1251 fonts from windows95

or

Different Russian Font Systems to fit your software
 http://www.karelia.ru/psu/Other/internet_e.html  English version
 http://www.karelia.ru/psu/Other/internet_k.html  Russian (koi8)
 http://www.karelia.ru/psu/Other/internet_a.html  Russian (windows)
 -- '' --              -- '' --  internet_8.html  --''--  (ms-dos)

 -- '' --              -- '' --  internet_i.html          (ISO)

____


TO READ TEXT IN BROWSER

If text in not legible in Netscape
Go to: Options/documentcode
and set to koi8 or Win1251 as appropriate
_______
ALSO CHECK THE FOLLOWING (useful when writing russian pages on your own
web site)


In netscape go to properties/documents/advance (click on content) then go
below to:  value
If it reads text/html;charset=1so8859-1 or is blank change it to
Text/html;charset=koi8-r
(or win1251 depending upon which font the page you want to read is written
in)

(then save file, close file, reload file)

You will, aso be able to type in Russia using the icon at the bttom of
your netscape (it appears when fonts are installed)

You will need to obtain a multi alphabet keyboard to type other than
touch type)
