This section has most of the information I've uncovered for my grandfather Valentin's sibings, parents, and forebears. Valentin will have his own section.
Anatoly 1889-1923 or 24
He fought the Bolsheviks with the White Russian army, evacuated to Gallipoli and was killed by Soviet agents in Latvia.
The author's grandfather
(He'll eventually get his own section)
He escaped Russia through China, became a US citizen with a false identity and lived a life of danger and intrigue.

The well bred women who married André. There are some stories about her in Rena's memoirs, and some details in the page on André.
Maria 1894-1916 or 17
Studied to become a teacher in Petrograd and died very young.
André 1846-1917, the son of priest who dropped out of theological seminary and became a lawyer. He wrote a news article that still gets cited – recently in a dissertation about Dostoyevsky.
The material I've gathered for my ancestors listed below may not be of much interest for the casual reader.
1773 - ?
Orthodox priest in a small village
Vasily's son who also became a priest of some importance. He was my Valentin's grandfather.
ca 1808 - ?
Another of Vasily's sons. He disappears from the record at an early age and so his page is short.
Valentin's uncle. He moved from Chernihiv to St. Petersburg. I didn't find much information about him.
I am unschooled in geneology so I didn't use any system to make this family tree. It's not very complex. If I have any living Shugaevsky relatives other than my mother and siblings I am unaware of them. Ariadna (at the bottom) is my mother.
