I  do wonder about this subject as well. It seems there are many different layers to be worked out.

Not only in terms of what do the Russian People themselves want (and even getting true and clear voting that hasn't been tampered with), but also, its good to ask questions about why.

1. Why would having a constitutional monarchy be good for Russia and her peoples?

2. Then there are also the other aspects that at this point in time, go hand in hand with statesmanship, like how would the Russian Orthodoxy, Federal Security Service and the Foreign Intelligent Service react to such a different era being brought in. What sort of issues may be faced, and would they all work together to truly honour Russia and her peoples.

3. Would such a new era bring stability in terms of currency, trade, strengthen diplomatic relations and family relations throughout Europe or would it destabilise it.
Again what sort of issues may be faced.

4. The Romanov family still seem very divided on many issues, this is not a good thing. Remembering that saying: Together we stand, divided we fall.

5. One must never forget what happened to the Late Imperial Family. It shows just what can happen when circumstances and people are not happy and in alignment as a whole.

6. Absolute power brings absolute corruption. Be mindful of what this actually means.

Thank you Page :)

So lovely!

I have written to The Department of Immigration requesting more information.

So we will work backwards from Australia and go from there.

PS All the team that worked on the design of the torpedo submarine were marked with a special tattoo apparently, Dad had a tattoo on his forearm of a ships anchor.

Thank you all for your condolences, we all appreciate it very much.

The day before my father passed a golden kestrel came into my backyard, not a bird that is found here. Stayed for quite a hew hours.

Also not sure if this is connected but its worth a mention in relation to DNA:

Kind Regards.

Hi there,

I am going to need to double check everything. Facts not Fiction. And for that I am certainly going to need a whole lot of help.

For example if its true he was a marine engineer in Russia that did what he says then that will need to be validated somehow.
Can anyone help with this?

Regarding the school he says he went to - was he somehow getting mixed up with his Father Nicolai? My research has shown that that school was not operating after the Revolution, so either he didn't go there or the date of birth he gave the Australian Immigration was incorrect. He was a displaced refugee and had no papers.

Yes he did say he went to that particular school in Russia, however, according to Australian Immigration records and our Birth Certificates the official date of birth he gave was 10th September 1921.
Australia Immigration records show that he, his wife Anna and son Igor boarded a ship called The Protea in Naples Italy on 2nd May 1949, and arrived in Sydney on 6th June 1949.

Kind Regards,

Thank you Uncle Sasha for the photo and update.

I am saddened to report that my father Oleg Nicolaevich Usov passed away earlier this year on 4/1/2018 after a illness lasting a year and a half.
The doctors thought at time of diagnosis(stomach cancer) he would only last 3 months.
Dad was a fighter and he struggled on being determined to live to August 2018. Unfortunately he didn't make it.

I found out only at his funeral that he had been a marine engineer in Russia and was part of a special team that designed the first torpedo submarine.

More to follow later this week.

At this time one of his sons is gravely ill. And a few of us are also having some medical issues related to our genetics.

We are praying to Archangel Michael, whom Dad always mentioned was out families Patron Archangel.

Peace be with you all.

Every day we are alive is indeed a gift.

Kindest Regards,

Susannah Jane Usov

Aha! Eureka! I think I may have stumbled across something interesting.......

 LEE, Robert (1793-1877)- The Last Days of Alexander, and the First Days of Nicholas, Emperors of Russia (London, 1854)

Here is the online link:

pages 26 discusses house at "Yoursoff"......,page 31, discusses what his plans are when he "decomissions himself"....

somewhere in the book is a section on Tsar Alexander 1st admonishing someone about a pregnant woman being mistreated.....hmmm the name "Yoursoff" linked to the name "Usov"??? there a connection there ???.....its pretty out there I agree...but....I wonder if somehow this is the connection of the rare dna we carry....the time period is correct from what I have been informed about how far back we share a common ancestor....and yes I am aware of the research being carried out on the various family lines....interesting times we live in......!

Thank you for being so kind, so relieved,  was concerned as to what might happen when I spoke up.

I will do my best to be able to place some photos of the sword. Dad was well known at the Antique Fairs in Sydney for many years for his expertise regarding swords and russian icons. He also had a good friend who owns/ed a shop called "Tsarinas" in Sydney.

I also was informed that for many years the Archbishop of the Russian Orthodox Church in Strathfield paid my father many visits, probably still does.

From memory dad said that the lady from Sothebys here in Australia came to see him many years ago and photographed his collection for a book about the Romanov collection to go on sale. She later then went to work in London at the Sotheby's office there. I do not know her name, was just informed by my father about it. She actually went to his home to meet with him to discuss. Apparently she was amazed. She may be the best bet at the moment regarding verifying the sword because as it stands today my elder brothers are not yet in alignment with me in being a team...sharing this information. I am in the bad books, for speaking up, about a number of things. Put it that way.

I do admit for making some errors of judgement in the past but hey you learn form your mistakes. Unfortunate situation, I have asked for forgiveness and am putting a prayer out that good will prevail. I think there is probably a good deal of fear around it for them as well which they have got from Dad, due to his circumstances and what happened to him.

Yes, I did pass on via email your links you gave me and explained to please show dad and ask if some items could be photographed. I am not certain that my brother will be able to do this and whether he will in fact pass it on either. It can be difficult at times to be able to speak with Dad privately as his german wife is very very protective of him, understandably, but it does create a problem at times.

Barry Lewis was emailed the other day to ask if he was open to coming for a visit to sit with my Dad and talk with him about his history but my brother was not in agreement. There is a concern on his part that Dad would be interrogated and he doesn't want Dad to feel that way. Neither do I. We have learnt in past situations with Dad that the best way is to be relaxed and cheeful and positive and thats when he opens up.

As it turns out Barry Lewis is just about to go overseas anyway on a large project.

However, time is marching on and the day will come when he is no longer with us and it would be a good thing if, in a comfortable and happy situation where he felt ok to discuss at some length with someone trustworthy, and not be hassled. I'm working on it but if you have any ideas please do share with me. One thing I though of is if someone wrote him a letter asking for his input on that period in history and his thoughts if he might participate. :-\

Some aspects are puzzling to me....Dad purchased a ceremonial sword that had belonged to the Tsars Brother, Michael many years ago in Sydney.

I wasn't sure and playing the family detective and historian,  I checked out one of the Romanov Sites and I recognised it quite by chance there happened to be an article about it. I contacted the sites owner and asked about it. I then asked my father how he came to know what it was - he said that he had recognised it from his early life, but that the seller of the sword did not know what he had. (I have suggested that he upon his death, instruct the sword to go back to Russia). Scratching my head as for him to have known about and and have seen it in his younger years - he would have had to of been born much earlier?!

The other thing is that my Mother maintains that Father gave an incorrect date of age to be able to get entry into Australia and that he was some 10 years older than the age he had given. Apparently it was because there was an age restriction - if you were over a certain age they would not accept you in as you were deemed to not be able to support yourself.

I then asked my Father if he had a birth certificate from Russia. He said no, because of where he was born and who he was, everyone knew about it. I asked him if he had any documentation at all to prove who he was. He said that he had placed some jars of russian soil along with his documents into a suitcase back ion those years before he exited Russia and had put them on a boat. He then travelled separately; ie not on the boat, to go and retrieve them at the other end. When he got there he said the Germans and I am assuming it must have the been the High Command  had taken possesion of his suitcase and were walking off with it as he arrived to get it out - so he was never able to retrieve it. I mentioned this particular aspect to the Lawer in 2009 when I went to see him.

The other thing is he says he and his family would holiday at Yalta in summertime, and that it was the place where Stalin, Rooselvelt, and Churchill. He also has mentioned the Yelagin- which is the Alexander Palace. So maybe then he is not a Usov but that he took on that name to get out of Russia, which is indeed what he said when I asked him.

I wonder if he was from some other family and was placed with the Usov family? Noble families in Europe did do this type of thing...This could explain things somewhat.

IF its true that he is much older then this is truly amazing, that would make him 100 or so years old! even if though he is t 95 he is still amazing! Still sound in body, mind and spirit...still driving, shopping and doing all the things an 80 year old would do if in good health!

All in all its been an excrutiatingly difficult thing to piece together and we are not done yet... I'm wondering now if it might be a very good idea to see if he would permit Barry Lewis to come and speak with him. Often a person who is specialist can ask the right questions and shed light on things. I will ask my brother to see if it can be done.

Thanks again for being a good man and helping us out.
