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.
