Yeah they are cute though! When I was in high school I wore one of my Dad's old sailor jackets from when he was in the Navy. He was really skinny back then so it fit me perfectly! I got a lot of compliments on it. I like sailor uniforms, they're so cute! I also like those striped shirts that they wore underneath them.!

I know!
However once I went on a cruise and for a whole day we had to stay on the ship -- it didn't dock at all-- and my brother and I did get rather bored, because the ship was so crowded we couldn't do very much!

I would if I had access to a scanner! Maybe someone else can -- it's in Victor Alexandrov's 'The End of the Romanovs'. It
s very blurry though. It might be somewhere on this forum ...i will have a look.

Well, we know the latest one that was taken that we know of but there might have been some taken later in Ekaterinburg but no one has seen them so we don't know if they exist, it is just rumoured. But of the ones we know, Maria's last photographs were probably this one:

and there was one taken of some children playing in the snow at Tobolsk that I saw in Victor Alexandrov's book, but it was kind of fuzzy and I couldn't tell if it was Maria or Olga!


Parfen Domnin was alleged to have been Terenty Chemodurov, the valet dismissed from service by Nicholas shortly after arrival in Ekaterinburg.  Chemodurov was quite elderly at this time, and had fallen ill, though some accounts claim that his illness was the on-set of some form or other of senility.

On leaving the Ipatiev House, Chemodurov was taken to the city hospital, where he was lodged in a regular ward, rather than the prison ward -- thus he escaped the notice of the Ural Bolsheviks and was not taken to Perm and later murdered like other members of the Imperial Suite and Household.

Chemodurov was replaced in the Ipatiev House by Alexei Trupp.

Following the murders and the fall of Ekaterinburg to the White Forces, Chemodurov left the hospital and provided some assistance to the first investigators.  Later, he returned to Tobolsk, where his wife was living, and he died there in 1920.

Thats right ! Chemodurov....the name escaped me. Thank you for that, Penny.

Yeah, I remember reading in either 'File on the Tsar' or 'Rescue of the Romanovs' that Domnin might have been an alias of one of the Tsar's footmen, but it couldn't have been Kharitonov or Trupp, because they were in the basement with the family on July 16/17. I was really confused by the whole Domnin thing -- someone was obviously covering for something, if Parfen Domnin didn't exist.

At the risk of getting rocks thrown my direction    ;D ;D......
Does anyone know if there was a tunnel under or near the Impatiev House? I just finished re-reading Shay McNeal's book. <dodging rocks>(i kept an open mind this time) and find several of her theories worthy of discussion.
She mentions a tunnel. It seems that would be something that someone somewhere know about...if there was a tunnel through which the IF could have escaped.

Yep, I remember reading that too. As for the tunnel, I don't know. I highly doubt it though, because that theory was based on a scene in 'Rescuing the Czar' (where Fox secreted the family away out of the Ipatiev house through a tunnel leading to the British Embassy)...and the book later turned out to be a fallcy.

Extra-Sensory Perception. It means that you have a kind of 'sixth sense' that allows you to know about things before they happen, or have connections with people where you understand them without talking, know what they are thinking, etc.
It hasn't been scientifically proven I don't think! :P

^ I agree 100%....there is not much that hasn't already been written about the other three Grand Duchesses, and the information about them that isn't entirely speculation is, unfortunatley, scant.  :-/

i LOVE Ortino! Where I work (at a boarding facility for dogs) there is a tan-colored French Bulldog there named Fiona, but I secretly named her Ortino 8)

yes in that pic Alexei does resemble Tatiana a lot. There is also another pic --I think it's in Love, Power & Tragedy or N&A: The Family Albums-- of Alexei sitting on the floor with some kind of weird hat on his head. His resemblance to TN struck me there, also.

They are writing a book about Fransizka S; apparently with evidence suggesting that Anna Anderson and FS were not one in the same.

Hmm...that's true. And in 'The Kitchen Boy', the story was basically written around her.
