Welcome to the New Kudashev Web Site

Website Drafts and Notes (image from flickr)

Since 2007, there has been a web site.

At the suggestion of Cousin Kitty Stidworthy and after some consultation, it was agreed that the correct contemporary transliteration or Romanization of Кудашевы is "Kudashev". See the previous post. So I have copied all the data from the old web site to this new web site. The old web site will not be deleted. I will, however, add a final post notifying visitors of the move and providing a link to this web site.

Family Genealogy

In the summer of 1999, I did a search on the Internet and came across a reference to Jacques Ferrand and to some books he has written on the noble families of ancient Russia. I ordered a book that included references to the Kudashev family. This revision is a scanned version of the chapter on the Kudashev family. I have left the text in the original French.
