« on: January 28, 2007, 06:27:29 PM »
Dear Reco, I'm doing this research for more than 2 years for you to know. And I did not mean to aks you or anybody to do my job. I've just ask a question. It's a forum, isnt it?
As for the GD there is a confusion because there is no photo of any of them there.And 2 match the dates and lifestyle.
So no need to be rude.
And thanks to all who did helped.

Has abyone heard about Villa Syracusa in Torquay? It's Overmead Hotel now but in 19th century was Romanovs' villa. Grand Duchess Marie stayed there in 1864. Her parties were Countess Alexandra Tolstaya and Count Grigoriy Stroganoff.
I couldn't find any photo of her there.
Short history is
Which Marie was it? Has anyone seen photos of her there?

Second part says:

The shot was made on the 3rd of March, ....8 (1918,28,38,etc) by Gregorian calendar.
That means the goods will be despatched on 4th of March of the same year and centure.

(Sounds like ironical joke. Mary Ann)

Research Russian Roots / Tatiana Olsufieva
« on: August 30, 2006, 05:54:08 PM »
Russian TV reported on a lady living in a home in Sant Paulo, Brasil. She is 100 y.o. and lefr Russia 88 years ago. Russian correspondent named her as Princess Tatiana Mikhailovna Olsufieva. He also said her family lived in Moscow near Devichie Pole (Maiden Field)in a mansion with a park.
I doubted some fact of this report. To my understanding Olsufiev family were counts not princes. Also in All Moscow of 1901 there is no record of this family at that address. Tried Internet search however no results.
Does anyone know what Olsufiev she may be?

I have photo of the house but how to download it here?
I don't think it's actually possible to view a flat as the building is private.

 :-*Thanks alot indeed. I live in the Central London and it's really fantastic to have a look at places where Felix stayed. Unfortunatelly many places do not exist  as they were due to war time bombing.

After the revolution it belonged to bolshevik government as so-called Rest home or sanatorium. Later it was used as a state dacha. During Yalta conference Stalin stayed there.
During Perestroika it was used as a private expensive hotel.
Now the place unfortunately belongs to the Ukrainian state security service and there is no access for tourist or anybody interested in history. How they use it- no idea. But I suppose they will ruin it as they already did to a lot of Crimea historical sites.
You can find a lot information through if you read in Russian.

I did not know the exact number of the house, but I heard that relatives stay there when in Paris. The house on the photo doesn't look like alive. However I suppose it's correct information. Shame I did not notice the house I came to look at. The street is very quite and there  was no one there. We just did not even notice No 34. Actually it's next door to the UN Nursery school. Thanks for help.
