I wanted to share with you with some photos of my great-grandmother. And I want you to compare this photos with photos of Anastasia... If you want to know how I've decided to do this, I'll tell you :)

P.S. sorry for my english

They look similar, but of course your great-grandmother wasn't Anastasia. The resemblance is astonishing, though!

Thank you, GrandDuchessAndrea, for your opinion. That's exactly what I've came here for. As for me, people on the photos are just the same. So I don;t know what to do...

Some more photos

and here you can see that they've got the same ears

Re  Reply #2:  Come. come, "tabasca."  I think we are warily "edging" around the issue.  What is it that you are implying and/or claiming? Plainly speaking, what thesis do the posted photos support?  (Your English is really very good, I might add.)   Regards,  AP.

My mum for all her life was thinking that her grandma was strange. Her name was Anna Romanchuk (not sure it would spell on English like that) and she was from poor family, which couldn’t even write! But Anna could write, read and so on. Moreover, she was teaching French at the local school. And what’s more strange – she DIDN’T know Ukrainian – the language that her family (mum, dad and her brother) spoke. HOW could it be ?! And HOW a girl from a poor family could marry the князь (I’ve found no analogs to this word on English) ??

I would really appreciate you if you give me some advices of what should I do with all these… Maybe I’m wrong thinking that those photos are of the same people?

And what about the thesis… What if Anastasia hasn’t died at 1917?

Before this gets too far out of hand. Tabasca, the remains of all of the Imperial Family have been found and identified by DNA testing, three times, by seven different labs. All tests came to the same result. Nobody survived in Ekaterinburg, including Ansastasia.

Yes, the woman bears a strong resemblance to Anastasia, but nothing more. It was not unheard of for a Knyaz to marry someone not of the nobility. If you 'really' want your answer, you can contact Dr. Terry Melton at Mitotyping Technologies in the US, and submit your DNA for testing and comparison, as she has the sequences for the Alexandra/Alice/Victoria mtDNA and the Alexandra and Nicholas nDNA and can compare you and/or your Mother, for a fee of course.

please stop me if i'm being out of line here, but maybe in the time of AA but now, how can there be claiments? all of the bodies have been confirmed as the IF. mind you, some people still deny the holocaust so i guess if you're dead set on a survivor of the ekaterinburg massacre then you'll go for it anyway.

however yeh, i can see a strong resemblance. its strange, but whilst your great grandmothers features are very like nastya's the overall look isn't there for me. if that really was nastya then it wouldn't be unbelievable because their are strong similarities, she looks way more like her than AA ever did imo, however i think if nastya had of progressed into adulthood she would have looked a lot like alix and irene. but you can definatley see it, so its still really interesting. but as lovely as it is to think that anastasia continued on to teach french, all the bodies have been found and tested.

but the story of your great grandmother is still really interesting. it is odd. what year was she born? and where was she born?

and yes, you're english is really good :)

Not to mention that Gilliard was very clear that Anastasia's French was never very good.

mtDNA analysis isn't cheap... I'm posting here to pursue myself and my family to spend money on it. Or just forget about this...

Thank you for your advice.

Anastasia's French was never very good.

she lived in "Chu" (г.Чу, Казахская ССР) and I doubt that anyone here has known French too to make a decision that her French isn't good enough to be a teacher... But it's only my thoughts, I don't insist on smth

i think thinking of other reasons why it isn't nastya is almost un needed when all of the bodies have been found anyway. its still interesting though, and i'm glad that you posted it because it is always odd to see someone who looks that strikingly like a member of the IF.
 i think its maybe something you do need to pursue for your own personal ideas, you have come here, and no, its not anastasia, but don't stop, because it is really interesting, and you should pursue it.

have you got any idea about any other details about her, if you knew when she died and roughly how old you could work out a DOB.

I speak fluent French, myself, actually...No one who spoke "bad French" could possibly teach it. Some of the grammar is so complicated that many ordinary French people would have difficulty teaching it!

yeh, i'd agree with that, my french teacher is actually french, but said her brother always wanders how she managers to teach the grammer etc, and he IS french. also, can you really imagine nastya wanting to teach french? never mind being ABLE to?

we're not trying to argue with you, in fact i think your topic is very interesting, and my comment about nastya teaching french was not aimed at you, just in general. like i said before all other pointers that would scrap it being nastya are almost unnecessary, her body has been found.

but its still interesting, you should look into it.
