When the Russian Imperial House turned to the General Prosecutorís Office with an appeal to rehabilitate Grand Duke Michael Alexandrovich of Russia, who was shot in 1918, the search for his remains begun near the city of Perm.

The research expedition crew will consist of criminal investigators, archeologists and historians. The remains of Nicholas IIís younger brother, who was murdered a month earlier than the tsarís family, have never been looked for before.

The scientists are now doing it as volunteers. The main problem is to define the area of searching.

The expedition will engage about ten people. Experts are bringing along echo-sounding devices and metal detectors to look for bullets, shells, and metal buckles.
