I come from the UK, in the south east of England. As for my heritage, it's basically all 'European'.

Your welcome I like classical, and ballet fairytale type and folk and I love skating Sasha Cohen is my favorite I love her skating. Swan lake is a very good musical. I seen some pictures of her a while ago. I like Michelle Kwan also. The best out of all in skating in my opinion is Sasha Cohen.Tatiana Tarasova is a russian ice skating coach.

"it's Vasa. Wasa is technically not correct but spelt that way"

I thought in Old Swedish that W and V were interchangeable. I couldn't remember off hand whether the boat's name had been spelt with a W or a V. Men inget problem!

The boat was spelled with a V as was the name. It's spelt with a W in North America and some other places  but in the old swedish books it's a V.

I was born in Wisconsin, but I claim Texas as where I am from.  I currently live in South Florida.  I have lived in Maracay, Venezuela, Bogota Colombia, Houston, Texas, Milwaukee (born there) and Ripon Wisconsin. (and several other small places.)

My hubby grew up in Puerto Rico and his grand dad is from Catalonia, Spain.

My dad is from Colombia, mom is 2nd generation US family from Germany.

Wow, the responses to this simple question show that interest in the Romanovs and Russian history transcend all national, ethnic and religious borders.

Though, this question is always hard for me to answer.  Short of quoting Wordsworth let's just say I was born in Ottawa, Canada, and lived in Massachusettes, Michigan, and California.  My Mom was Irish/Catholic-Yankee/Anglican, and my Dad is from Lucknow, India.  His family were former Sikhs who converted to Christianity in the 19th century.  Okay, way more info than anyone wanted.  Got it.

I got interested in Russian history in college.  The Cold War was still pretty cold and I wanted to understand what it was all about.  Being mostly Irish by temperment, that meant going back to the beginning, or thereabouts.  Once into it, I loved the topic and regretted that there were only 2 courses available.
God bless,
Kate
