« on: November 07, 2018, 08:27:36 PM »
"On 24th October, a monument to Grand Duchess Olga Nikolaevna (1895-1918), the eldest daughter of Emperor Nicholas II was established in the Russian city of Novy Oskol, situated 90 kilometers northeast of Belgorod.
Founded in 1905, the school was then named Her Imperial Highness Grand Duchess Olga Nikolaevna Women’s High School. Today, the oldest educational institution in the city, is simply referred to as Olginskaya High School. Funds for the construction of the educational institution were donated by the grand duchess herself."

According to Helen Azar's Facebook page, Margarita Nelipa (Belochka) has a new book about Tsarevich Alexei, due out in 2015!

Please post information and photos here.  I'll start with some illustrations: 



I'm looking for names of and information about servants, friends, and retainers of the family of Tsar Nicholas I, particularly around the early to mid-1840s.  Friends of the empress and her daughters especially interest me, but I'd be very grateful for whatever help I can get.  Many thanks in advance.

Does anyone know where I could purchase back issues of Nashe Nasledie (Наше наследие) magazine?  Specifically, I'm looking for issue 55, which was published in 2000.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you in advance.
