Since there are so many easily available sources, from the internet to your local library or bookstore, I decided to list links to regional community resources. Many of these are in Russian. If you want to look for further information on the internet, first try the sources on the Link Only section on the General Information page; most of them also have information on Russia. Universities with Eastern European studies departments and Russian Orthodox Churches may also sponsor lectures and events. Many larger cities have a Russian community that may not have an internet presence. The links below may take you to sites in Russian, and I have not taken the time to translate them. I found many of them through Bay Area Russian American Business Affiliates Network . Be aware that some of these offer dating services. These are listed alphabetically by city where possible. For a page with a massive number of links, go to Super Russian Resources .
