I can think of two ways:
* check out phone directories for the last name Zinner and call them all.
* Go to state archive and place an enquiry. I guess the archive is situated somewhere in Lenina street. Again, look this up in the phone directory.
Home this helps,

: My name is Samuel Sinner [Samuel Richardovich Zinner]. At the
: University of Nebraska at Lincoln (USA) I am writing my Ph.D.
: dissertation on Petr Ivanovich Zinner (1879-1935), the father of Ervin
: Petrovich Zinner who published several books on literature and folklore
: in the 1960s-1990s at the Irkutsk State Pedagogical Institute.
: I am seeking a contact in Irkutsk who could give me information
: about E. P. Zinner, if he is still alive and where his relatives may
: live at present, and other information about the life and scholarly
: career of E. P. Zinner. Petr Ivanovich Zinner
: was my grandfather's cousin and in the 1930s the relatives in America
: lost touch with the Zinner family in Russia, including Kamilla, Alfred,
: Helmut, and Margaret Zinner. P. I. Zinner died in the Gulag. My request is therefore of a personal and not only
: scientific nature. Any help anyone can give me will be greatly
