This is also under General Topics, but recommend  directarticle.org.   A new website by Greg King and Janet Ashton.  Already good and growing.

The site has recently been updated with a new reprint, and two new articles, as well as minor updates to the front page (http://www.directarticle.org/) and the various author pages. Please visit http://www.directarticle.org/Contents.html  for updates; but I would particularly like to draw your attention to part one of the long-awaited article by William Lee on Grand Duke Dmitri Pavlovich:-

http://www.directarticle.org/Young_Dmitry.html. Will has access to a great deal of previously-unknown information on the Grand Duke, as well as considerable insight into his character, and I look forward to posting further installments.

A whole bunch of new pages has gone up on Directarticle today, and they are all about books.

Greg King writes about his past works and forthcoming book on a series of pages which start here:

http://www.directarticle.org/Greg%27sBooksPage.html

and I have updated my own book page here:

http://www.directarticle.org/Germanwoman.html

There is still some tidying up to do, (notably on the page about Greg's Ludwig II bio, which looks odd when viewed through any browser except Mozilla despite my best efforts), but I hope that all provide useful information as they stand.

Latest addition to Directarticle is a reworked version of my 2005 Konstantin Nikolaevich article: -

http://www.directarticle.org/Konstantin1.html

I have also made some alterations to the lay-out and illustations of Greg's article on his book about Ludwig II, as there were some difficulties displaying the text in the previous version: -

I said this before in the video thread, but frozentears.org is a good site that organizes videos (mostly documentaries and any T.V shows about the Romanovs).  It even has silent home footage of the royal family!

It seems like there is a lot of information coming in, or new things. This was a good find.
