The American Society
for Russian Naval History was incorporated in
the state of Virginia, USA in January of 1996 as a non-profit
The Society absorbed and will continue the work of two existing programs: the Soviet Navy Archives Project and the St. Petersburg Historic Archives Project. It has also established an important relationship with the Russian Navy museum in Lakewood, New Jersey. The Society has three main goals:
We encourage the international naval and military history community as well as Sovietoloigists, genealogists and hobbyists to participate in the Society. Individuals and institutions are eligible to participate in the Society through an annual dues or a membership in kind. The latter option allows a person or institution to donate copies of personal papers, photographs or other documents to the Society in return for membership benefits.

The AMERICAN SOCIETY FOR RUSSIAN NAVAL HISTORY encourages your support. Monies collected will be used to finance our Society and our programs.
Publishing Projects - The ASRNH is working with Blitz, the Russian-Baltic Information Center in St. Petersburg, Russia to publish the reference books on naval and military subjects as well as archival guides. Three archival reference books have already been published and are available through the ASRNH. A list of the publishing projects we are now working on is attached.
Modernization of the Russian Naval Archives - Archives in Russia, including the Naval archives contain invaluable historic materials but they are struggling. Not only are they allocated very little money for salaries, maintenance and even heating they also lack modern office equipment, stationery and sometimes even postage stamps. The ASRNH is working toward sending the two Navy archives in the St. Petersburg area personal computers, fax machines and other items necessary to set up a modern office.
