I think it may be from Lili Dehn's. I'll see if I can find it.

Edit: Haven't found it in Buxhoeveden's or Dehn's memoirs. I know I've read it in more than one book. Possibly Kurth's or Lovell's books on Anna Anderson and/or Nicholas & Alexandra.

Sunny, I was only referring to Talya's post about my photobucket account.

I did open it up for a little while but that was quite a while back. I might again but I have some personal, non-Romanov related stuff on there at the moment that I would have to remove.

What are you people getting these from? :D I can't seem to get in the Romanov_Albums, even when I use the password NAOTMAA. Did the password get changed or something?

Are you referring to the photobucket with the name Romanov_Albums? Because that's my personal photobucket account. And people aren't supposed to be able to get into it..

It does look like Alexei from first glance.

If you look closely/highlight you can see the line where fringe starts and then the slightly disheveled mass on the forehead appears to be Anastasia's fringe.

I've wondered if it was OT's bedroom. The window placement is right and I think you can see the vanity-type table in the corner.

(And, burger queen, you don't need to credit that tumblr account. There's nothing new on it. They just repost pictures found here and other places on the web. They own nothing.)

Of course it's not real footage.

I know it's older but I can't remember the title of the film. Many parts of it are featured in the Russian documentary Revenge of the Romanovs.

I love these.

He supposedly took some of Nicholas II and his family but they haven't turned up yet.

Anastasia was a plumber? Haha, do you mean plumper? =)

Anastasia started to gain weight during captivity in Tobolsk and that's the first time it was a noticeable issue. She mentioned in a letter that it was "all of the sudden".

You're very welcome, blessOTMA. I love your attention to details, as usual!

She was definitely the least shy among the girls. I think she enjoyed joking with them and they were entertained by her. Since she was so young, I'm not sure how romantic or flirtatious is what in her eyes. Nothing at all has really been said on that subject with Anastasia.

I think Olga and Anastasia had a special bond. I think they had the most in common personality-wise. I've always noticed in home videos of them that Olga and Anastasia are often talking to each other. You can see it also in footage from 1914.

This was my favorite part in that bit of footage. Anastasia looks to the side and smiles very quickly at someone:

Thank you all! I wouldn't bother if it weren't for my fellow Romanov lovers. =)

Let me know if you come up with any more ideas.

Great footage! What year was it filmed?

1916. It's supposedly the last footage filmed of them.

Haha, sorry about lack of activity!

Thank you very much for your suggestions, Olga Bernice. They are definitely helpful! My last website was on freewebs and it was It's basically deconstructed now.

As for an update:

Next week I'm meeting with Laura Mabee and we're going to work on getting it up! I'll let you know, of course.
