‘Necropolis of Russian Shanghai’ is an English-language online extension of the study by Dr. Victoria Sharonova, Nekropol Russkogo Shanhaia (Шаронова В. Г. “Некрополь русского Шанхая”, Москва, 2013, ISBN 978-5-906470-13-3). The book contains 1062 records; the online database presently lists 2130 persons. Additional records were sourced from newspaper obituaries, emigrant registration cards, gravestones, police reports, genealogy databases and communication with the descendants of Shanghai Russians. China Families is grateful to Victoria Sharonova and Katya Knyazeva for sharing the database with us. You can find it also on Katya’s own platform, where you may also find photographs of some of those recorded here.
