Dear Mr. Silchenko,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located the Population Schedules for the 1930 Census and the Population Schedules for the 1940 Census, 1940 - 1940 in the Records of the Bureau of the Census (Record Group 29) that may contain information about Alexander A. Kurenkov/Koor and his family while they lived in Washington. The 1940 Census schedules are digitized and available using the Catalog. See NARA’s 1940 Census Records web page for more information. For access to the non-digitized schedules, please contact the National Archives at Washington, DC - Textual Reference (RDT1) via email at email@example.com.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and pursuant to guidance received from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NARA has adjusted its normal operations to balance the need of completing its mission-critical work while also adhering to the recommended social distancing for the safety of NARA staff. As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgement as well as a substantive response to your reference request from RDT1. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.
For information about the U.S. Census, see the Census Bureau technical documentation and questionnaires.
You may wish to search Ancestry.com or FamilySearch.org for the U.S. Census. There may be a fee for using Ancestry. Instead, check for access at your local library as many library systems subscribe to these sites, making them free for their patrons.
We also located the Register of the Aleksandr Aleksandrovich Kurenkov (A. A. Koor) Papers from the Online Archive of California (OAC) that contains numerous written works, documents and memorabilia regarding Alexander A. Kurenkov. Please contact Hoover Institution Archives at firstname.lastname@example.org for information about this collection.
The brief biographical information provided by the OAC link above indicates Alexander Kurenkov was a member of the Washington State National Guard between 1925 and 1927. We suggest contacting the Washington State Adjutant General’s Office, Camp Murray, Building 1,Tacoma, WA 98430-5000 to request his military personnel record. You also may complete and sign a Standard Form 180 (Request Pertaining to Military Records) and it email it to EABranchArchives@sos.wa.gov
We suggest that you review NARA’s Resources for Genealogists as well as the FamilySearch Research wiki for Washington Genealogy (1923 - 1950s), California Genealogy (1950s - 1971), and Russia Genealogy (1891 - 1923) may be useful.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck in your research!
Dear Charleen Vocca! Thank you very match for you help! I already checked all electronic bases (including the paid subscription of ancestry.com). I had found a lot of information about Kurenkov (Koor) family. Thank you for advise to connect with Washington State Adjutant General’s Office!
All indications are that Luba Koor Wittke, b. 1921, is still alive in Palo Alto CA. Just google her name to find an address.
