Writing Endeavors

I'm currently reading "The Crown and the Crucible" by Michael Phillips and Judith Pella.
Robert gave it to me Christmas Eve 1994, but I've never read the whole book.
It's a story of Russian peasants in 1876. There are many books after this one, continuing the story of "The Russians".
I'm still trying to get a feel for what my great grandparent's lives were like at this time in history. I also visited the library on Monday and searched the shelves for 2 non-fiction books; great big thick volumes which tell the history of this huge land.
I'm trying to get my research part finished by the end of June. I really feel that I need to understand the history and the flavour of the land before my story can be written.
