Sokolov himself transported a set of documents through Vladivostok to Paris, where he prepared a book about the fate of the Romanovs (published posthumously in 1925). Seven of the original eight volumes that belonged to Sokolov are now at Harvard University.



The above was copied from the article original posted by Lexi4.

So one of the volumes is missing.
I chose the road less traveled and now...where the heck am I????

It appears that Sokolov didn't always have his papers under his control:

Quote
Just a few extra notes on the journey of "the box":  Miles Lampson  recieved the "relic" box from Gen. Diterikhs who had taken it by force from Sokolov.  Miles Lampson in turn handed it over to the American consul-general in Siberia.  The American took it to Harbin.  There Sokolov "caught up with it" and took it to England and to King Georg.
 
It is heresay, but Mlies Lampson told a friend that King Georg didn't seem to know what to do with the "relic" box and asked Lampson to do something with the  "relic" box and remove it from his presents.
 
Miles Lampson's son-in-law, Lord Eliot  said Lampson did take it home for a time and thought the box did not contain Romanov remains but that of one of the imperial servants and thus may explain the lack of interest of King Georg.
 
Miles Lampson became Lord Killearn.
 
Miles Lampson was the "charge' d'affaires in Siberia" whatever that means and in another book I have he had the  position as "British High Commissioner of Siberia" in April of 1918....

Additional information about the "box":
Quote
I just found Penny's post...I am sorry to be taking up so much space on this board with an old response and I will remove it if necessary, but I couldn't link to just one post, so I guess I will just copy it here:

When Sokolov finished packing it, the box contained:
 
*42 pieces of bone not identified as human
*the severed finger (often described as Alexandra's, but more likely to be a man's -- a colleague identified it as Dr Botkin's)
*Dr Botkin's false teeth
*two small slices of skin
*thirteen "drops of blood" taken from the Ipatiev House and saved in vials (probably scrapings of dried blood)
*several more vials of "greasy earth" which Sokolov thought might contain melted human fat, though this idea is a matter of contention, because the "greasy earth" was gathered at the Four Brothers while the alleged cremations took place miles away
*various pieces of charred clothing, broken buttons, destroyed jewelry and other small artifacts, like those believed to have been the occupants of Alexei's pockets (coins, silver paper, etc)
 
In 1998, Metropolitan Vitaly of ROCOR announced that all the contents of the box were in the walls of St Job the Sufferer in BRUSSELS -- this is in direct contrast to the word of Grand Duke Vladimir Kirillovich who declared in 1971 that the human remains were taken from the box some short time after the box came into his possession in 1931.  He was silent on the final resting place of the human remains, as is his daughter Maria -- and rather understandably so -- but it is most likely that they were buried privately in St Genevieve de Bois as is sometimes suggested.
 
Continuing in 1971, GD Vladimir said that the remaining items in the box were lodged in a bank vault in Paris, where Nazi occupiers broke into them in the 40s, on a search for Imperial treasure.  Nothing appears to have been stolen, however, for when the box and its contents were turned over to the Church of St Job the Sufferer after the War, it looks like everything that Sokolov placed in the box was accounted for -- the Church took photographs of every item in the box and made a careful inventory list before placing them in a larger box and sealing them in the wall of the Church during its construction.  MP Remy, a German film producer (and all-round fabulous man  ) pulled off a stellar piece of research in contacting the Church and requesting that they open their files for him to see the listing and the photographs.  Surprisingly, they complied with this, allowed him to make some copies, and confirmed that there were no human remains within the wall of the Church.  This makes absolute sense, since it is not Orthodox practice to treat human remains in this manner.  Greg and I have seen with our own eyes Remy's copies of this information.  So what is walled up in the BRUSSELS Church are the following items: icons, buttons, hooks-and-eyes, burned pieces of cloth and some pieces of glass vials.
 
As for DNA testing the human remains, there might not be much point in trying:  The fat may or may not be human -- remember that this an area heavily trafficked by forestry workers, soldiers and peasant farmers and fishermen, all of whom frequently built campfires -- and its doubtful that it is the Romanovs' if it is because it was retrieved miles away from the alleged burning site.  The blood scrapings came from the house, and could therefore belong to any one of the victims, and not necessarily the missing children.  The two pieces of skin are a possibility, but only experts might know what sort of state of decomposition they might be in after eighty-five years.  And remember the matter of contamination -- this might in and of itself render the skin unusable in terms of DNA matching.
 
As for the 42 pieces of bone:  The could never be identified as human, and I think that they might represent either Ortino's body or the chicken dinners that were brought out to the guards at the mine -- or some combination of both.

Actually, some things from the vault were taken.  Hitler took personal possesion of the original Sokolov dossier, which Stalin then took into his personal files, where it remained in the files of the Soviet Ruler up until Yeltsin.

So, AA wasn't telling us a lie,  Hitler was interested in the fate of Nicholas II, therefore, AA was of interest to Hitler.

Hitler was interested in Frederick the Great and Napoleon as well.  I suppose that will be another great conspiracy chase then ?
