The 1889 Annuaire de la Noblesse Russie, the definitive work published in St. Petersburg very clearly makes no mention of any Noble family called Dolgoruky. The Dolgorukov family, the subjject of this question, was a noble family of the highest ranks.  If there was a branch called "Dolgoruky" it is from prior to 1650 and was of a far more minor nobility and thus can not be said to be the "same family".

The volume I reference is "L'Annuaire de la Noblesse Russie" first edition published in French in St Petersbourg 1889. I will rely on it as accurate far more than Wikipedia.

The name Dolgoruky is nowhere mentioned in the book.

If there is no separate Dolgoruky family, it must then mean that it was all one and the same family, some of whom sometimes used the form Dolgoruky instead of Dolgorukov.

Right, there were 2 forms - Dolgorukov and Dolgorukiy - it's the same family. In  various sources one can find both forms - I often came across both of them in memoirs, correspondence and so on of XVIII-beg.XX centuries.

Does anyone have a photo of prince Николай Сергеевич Долгоруков (Nikolaj sergeevic Dolgorukov) who was ambassador in Rome between 1908 and 1912?
I can't find it anywhere...
