Russian Immigrants at Ellis Island

America is a land built by immigrants, people who come looking for opportunity, freedom, and a better life. And a fair number of those immigrants have come from Russia, the former Soviet Union, and the former Russian empire. According to the latest US Census data, there are about 3 million Russian-Americans in the US. 

We researched famous Americans with Russian roots and offer this compilation. Our database is by no means comprehensive, but it is the most complete list we have seen anywhere, and we will be constantly supplementing and adding to it (send us additions and updates).
