RootsWeb hosts the free From Russia to China and Beyond (http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~rusharbi/) from user-submitted transcriptions, indexes, and record compilations.,

“This site is for emigrants from Russia who went to China – Harbin or another city – in their search for a home in another country. Most of these people ended up in the Americas, both North America and South America. …Many of these people left all their family in Russia, some left part of the family in China, and almost all left the bulk of their possessions in one of these two places.”
