You will have to give us more information about who you are seeking or which US port the ship arrived in. Most Russian emigrants left from ports in Germany, England, or other European ports.
Dear Ms. Coleman,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
For information on Immigration Records, including passenger lists, available at the National Archives, you may wish to visit the web pages titled Immigration Records and Part 5: Available 1800-1959 Immigration Records
If you can provide additional information, we will be happy to assist you further. And if you know where the ship arrived, that may help you with your search. As an example, if the ship arrived in New York, a search of the National Archives Catalog included Passenger Lists, 1817 - 1897 of vessels arriving at the Port of New York in the Records of the U.S. Customs Service (Record Group 36). For more information about these records, please contact the National Archives at New York (RE-NY) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Or if it arrived in Philadelphia, a National Archives Catalog search located the Passenger Lists of Vessels Arriving at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 1/1/1883 - 12/31/1945 (T840) in the Records of the Immigration and Naturalization Service (Record Group 85). For more information about these records, please email the National Archives at Washington, DC - Textual Reference (RDT1) at email@example.com.
