Dear Colleagues,

   As a result of 3 years of hard work of our gerontology research group
at Moscow State University, we have created a unique genealogical
library that consists of more than 300 genealogical and biographical
publications and information on longevity of more than 500,000 persons
ever lived in Russia.

   Now we are going to computerize this enormous amount of information
and we would be most interested to find partners (and/or sponsors) for
this project.
   In particular, we are going to focus our research on genealogy
of centenarians in order to understand the mechanisms of longevity.
We would greatly appreciate any information about research work in this
direction and any genealogical databases that might be used for these

   Any information on organizations or persons who might be interested
in this project would be greatly appreciated. If we succeed to find
support for this project, we will create the first independent
non-governmental non-profit scientific center for longevity and genealogy
research in the history of Russia.

   Additional information including letters of recommendation and my CV
is available upon the request.

   Sincerely yours,

Dr. Leonid A.Gavrilov, Ph.D. <aeiveos at glas.apc.org>
