Hi, I'm trying to locate my Great Uncle's marriage. The only thing is that he married a Russian lady (that we knew as Tania). I know that they married in Odessa, and I know that she was a White Russian. Is there anyway of tracing their marriage records with only his surname of Scholefield and thereby find her maiden name?
