Hi....I am American....from Chicago, Illinois - USA!   My grandparents on both sides came over here from Hungary (the old Austro Hungarian Empire!) before World War I.   Great to know there are at least two other Romanov/royalty fans in  Chicago....Hi to fellow Chicagoans ....moon_tsarina and green_day_addict!!!

I'm in New York. My ancesters are Czech, Scottish, German, and Swedish. My babysitter was Russian, though, so I spoke Russian as a baby.

Welcome, Margarita! Your background seems very interesting! So, do you speak Russian? How I wish I could speak it some day! My Great-grandpa was a philologue and could read, write and speak it...What a man!  ::)

I only wish I still spoke Russian...I am picking up little bits and pieces now. I never learned to write Cyrillic (sp?). I hope to speak it again by my graduation from high school.
