RGIA File: Transcription needed

Hi there,

I was wondering if someone could give me some advice on getting someone to transcribe (not translate) a file from the Russian State Historical Archive and how much it would cost (or put me in touch with some people who may be able to help - my email address is at the end of this post) nbsp; All I'd need is a Word file, in Russian, with the documents copied out with page numbers and information who each file/letter is to and from.
