I am wondering why the voice recordings haven't been posted yet? If they are out there to be heard then why haven't we heard them yet?

I think it would have been sad if any of them had to survive with the memory of their family's murder. I find peace in knowing that they died together.

I think, in a way, by saying that "they can finally rest in peace" we are also allowing ourselves to find peace in this tragedy. This story has been a part of our lives for so long. Now we can finally be at peace knowing that everything is OK, there were no survivors, and that they all died together as a family.

They died the way that they lived, which was together. Now their bodies can be together again after 90 years. We find so much comfort in knowing this.

It would be amazing to see this article of clothing that was found - and still on the body?
This is extraordinary to me.

Wow. It's somehow hard to find words after reading this.. Thank you so much for posting it.

The story has itself about two paragraphs in the New Zealand Herald. I'm actually surprised that it has anything at all - but it goes to show that this discovery is important all around the world. It makes a huge difference to a lot of people.

Of course there will always be people out there to ruin the joy of an event of this proportion.

This is, after all, a board of people who hoped that the two bodies would one day be found and are THANKFUL that such a revelation has been made.

I don't mean to change the topic, but didn't the article mention the bodies being found with bits of nails and things? The bullets, obviously, are understandable. But the little bobs and things...Don't a lot of history books say Alexei used to carry things like that around? This might sound completely pointless, but it was just a suggestion to throw out there. :)

I thought of this, as well. But didn't the Bolshevik soldiers strip them all down and burn the clothes? I guess it is possible that they tossed the remains of the burnt pile in the graves. I am curioius to see this "fragment of dress" that has been mentioned in several articles.

And so little of the skulls that are left, as well. I wonder why these have received more damage than the others.

Are there any genuine images from this excavation? If so, please link!

I wonder how long it will take for the DNA results to be released to the public.

"We know that Prince Alexei suffered from hemophilia, so we'll have to detect the genome of this disease. Next, we'll carry out a ballistic text to compare the bullets with those found at the first burial site. I'd say there's a resemblance, but we'll have to compare groove marks. Only then, using a total of all the data, one will be able to draw a logical conclusions whose remains they are," Nevolin said."

This is what I mentioned in another thread. This article does have some good info.

A lot of the articles say the same thing.

Very vague things.

Would the examiners be able to compare the bullets found in the grave to the bullets found at other sites as well? I imagine that this would be an important piece of evidence. We really have to consider the other objects found with the bones.

Also, were the skulls of the two bodies present in the grave?

It is indeed difficult to believe how on 'earth' they managed to dig and sift all the soil in that entire area, annually for decades now, and they have just managed to discover these remains.   Could it be that they had been removed then replaced - like the skulls of the 'parents' Nicholas and Alexandra?

I was wondering the same thing. After all this time? They just happened to find this burned area that they didn't notice before. Would the area still appear burned after 90 years? It's all very strange.   

Thank goodness college has taught me to be a more critical thinker..
I have a few questions:

Why did it take so long to find this "burned area?"
If the area was burned at the time of the Romanov murders, would it appear the same today?
Where exactly were the bones/bodies found in relation to where the other Romanovs were buried?
What was the condition of the bodies?
Were the searchers looking for the missing remains of Alexei and Maria or was this an accidental finding?
