Thank you very much! I just visited the site, and it was a very good translation.

Good news indeed for Saint Petersburg.

Hello Everyone!

Tried to translate with Babelfish and didnt make sense at all. Could someone recomend me a better one, or have a translation of the page.

Just wanted to say, GREAT BLOG!!!

Hello everybody!

Certainly, I must agree that this is one of the most ridiculous survivor stories I ever heard. Not only the Empress and Emperor were loving and caring parents that will never gave their child away, no matter how dissapointed because of its gender, but AA, in my opinion met anyone with the slightest interest in her story.

Hello Everyone!!

I enjoyed this book tremendously. I think it gave us the sad atmosphere of the last days of the Imperial FAmiliy. Sometines is hard to read, because, like I read on this thread, this people r not only historical, far away beings, but part of our lives in many ways.

Although this book let me with a couple of questions that I'll ask later, I am glad to have read it. Thank Miss R!

I watched it last night. The will repeat late on the weekend, but I'm not sure when. But do not despair my friends, it is interesting, but not great. This forensic doctor had first hand experience with the Commission that investigated the Kennedy Assasination in 1978, later he discussed the poor custody of the evidence in the OJ Simpson Case, then the Romanov Family burial discovery. It took like 15 minutes or lso. Two things that I found very interesting: One of the bodies (the documentary doesnt say which one) had congealed fat which guarded two bullets consisteng with WWI ammo; and some of the segments of movie clips used where new to me. I would  liked the show to have dedicated one episode to each cases indivudually. I think that from the scientific point of view is a wonderful example of how DNA and forensic investigation in general contribute to history.

Thats just my opinion.

Hi! Thanks for sharing your photos. Although obviously the majority of the place is in ruins it manages to conserve its beauty. From the photos alone, you can sense the religious spirit of Nicholas and Alexandra.

I visit Russia in 2005, but unfortunately, didn't have the oportunity to go there (my guide didn't aknowledge the place as "presentable", and honestly I didn't know how to get there alone), but I did manage to walk for some extent into the Alexander Park. It's a special place.

Hi everybody and Happy 2008!

It's been a while since I asked for any news of the restorations works on the Alexander Palace. I know that some work has begun, but I wonder if real progress has been made and if somebody has any photos of those works. Also I would like to know, if there is any plan to work on the Children's Island or other places of the Alexander Park? Thanks for any information.

Thank you very much for your reply. I read that same information some time ago in this forum.  The thing is that I came recently from a trip to Moscow and St. Petersburg and it made me very sad to see the Palace's actual condition, it seems lost in time and that the only people that care about it are us.  Precisely the ones that can't do much about it.  I just hoped for new information.  Thanks again.


PD: Excuse my grammar, but English is not my first language. Thank you.
