I'm having trouble tracing my relatives from the Russian Empire (now in areas of Lithuania, Belarus and Poland).  Any ideas/databases to assist with this?  I don't know if it's pertinent, but my relatives are Jewish.

Probably, the best place to start is Ellisisland.org.  They have digitized passenger lists.

Harbin, China had a large population of Russians. It was referred to the "Moscow of the North - according to one of my Chinese friends. The Russians built a railway there that linked Russia to the sea. My Russian grandfather was born there and I hope to find some connections for him.
