5/3/2009 Hi, I would like very much to translate my great grandparents' marriage certificate. It took almost an entire year to arrive, Unfortunately, my Russian is very rusty, so I am unable to do it myself. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. I am only looking to know their parents names, their professions and where they might have lived... I don't need to know the names of the witnesses unless they happen to be related. Thank you kindly, Zev View the post, there are no responses
