Servants, Friends and Retainers / The dear Ossorgin (?)
« on: April 29, 2004, 11:36:18 PM »
In a letter of Empress Aleksandra to Anna Aleksandrovna Virubova, sent from Tobolsk and included in Virubova's memoirs, the Empress says "How sad dear Ossorgin is dead! Who, apart from her, has been murdered?". Does anyone knows who this Ossorgin lady may have been?

Grand Duchess Elizabeth Feodorovna / Books on Grand Duchess Elizabeth
« on: April 22, 2004, 11:26:58 AM »
I enjoyed the book and learned many new things -some of the Grand Duchess letters to her relatives are very interesting, and I also learned a lot about her work with the sick and poor in Moscow. However, may be you should know the book is written from an Orthodox, religious point of view, and as you may now we have some beliefs and thoughts that a non-Orthodox probably would not share or understand the same way. Anyway, I would certainly recommend the book.
Also the proper title says "martyr of Communist yoke", not "joke".  Sadly it was no joke at all...

The Imperial Family / Grand Duke Alexei Alexandrovitch
« on: April 18, 2004, 11:35:29 PM »
I've read GD Aleksey Aleksandrovich's only son (perhaps a legitimate one) was shot by the Bolsheviks in 1930-32. Does anyone knows more about his life and death? Even if he was not a GD or a prince, I wonder why he is never counted among the family members killed by the Communists. I also wonder about what happened to his children and grandchildren (he had a few) and where they may be now.

Has anyone read a book by Victor Alexandrov, "The end of the Romanovs"?

The Final Chapter / Tobolsk house

I know that the Ipatiev house was destroyed -but what about the Tobolsk house? Does it still exists? After all, "they" lived there a longer time than in Ekaterinburg.
