Hi Christian, I wrote to Memorial last year and have still not heard back .... good luck! It took PISM in London 7 months to send me records and many Ukranian/Russian archives I write to I get a response within 2 - 3 months so this does seem typical.

I emailed the address given within this group about 3-4 weeks ago but haven't had a response or acknowledgement as yet. I sent the email in English as I don't speak Russian. Can you typically expect a long wait when requesting information from the society or have I not approached this in the right way? Has anyone else got experience of getting information from the society? I have to say that the information I could give in my email was quite brief; my grandfather's date of birth, town of residence, and approximate date of deportatation. Hopefully that would be enough information for them to search with?
