Genealogist Vladimir Paley poses for a picture after an interview in Jewish Cultural Center in Moscow July 4, 2014. Most of Paley's clients want him to dig up their family history with one goal in mind: making a case to obtain foreign citizenship and leave Russia. Six months ago the soft-spoken genealogist had no such requests, but this month he hired an assistant to help him with the flow of would-be emigres. Picture taken July 4, 2014.
