Ooh.  Where could one get this documentary?

Tatiana Nicholaievna / Re: Tatiana Nikolaevna & Dmitri Malama
« on: April 26, 2004, 05:56:28 PM »
The ball book you're talking about talks about Pavel Voronov, a Standart officer, who Olga apparently had a crush on, who ended up married (and OTMA were at the wedding!).

Oh, wow, thanks for sharing those, Bob.  Do you have any other pictures of the girls' rooms besides the ones shown on the site?

Tatiana Nicholaievna / Re: Tatiana resembles Alix?
« on: April 20, 2004, 09:03:56 PM »
During the Terecentury celebrations, Tatiana apparently drank bad water and got typhus and they cut off her hair.  So for those 1914 photos she has a super-stylish bob!

From what I understand that lady is indeed Rita. When I went to the Hoover Archives there were letters from the girls in Tobolsk to Rita; alas I can't read Russian and there were no English translations as promised (but one wasn't allowed to copy them, which made me a little annoyed).  The database said that they were to "Margarita Khitrovo, nee Erdeli" so I suppose Rita was married?  Anyone else know?

The Imperial Family / Re: Exhibitions

The train sounds terrific since I'm in the LA area.  Since it's in the summer and I graduate HS in June I'd probably be able to go (but I'd be the baby of this whole thing, being 18)...  Of course, I wish they'd just have some Romanov exhibit in LA.  It'd be grand if it was at the Getty Center or something.

Penny--they don't do DVDs... I don't think! I've been to the Hoover Archive twice (haha, ostensibly I told my mom for a college search, since my good friend's going to Stanford next year)... I don't know how much they were, but I just sort of sat in there, looking at all of them.  There were hours upon HOURS of footage, it was quite scary how much!  Lots and LOTS of stuff not shown in documentaries...it was terrific.

Speaking of the whole situation about Boris proposing to Olga--do we know anything more about it, other than Alix's comments in that one letter to Nicholas?

The Imperial Family / Re: Languages of NAOTMAA and how they sounded
« on: February 16, 2004, 03:24:30 PM »
I'm curious as to what the girls sounded like, and Alexei, too -- anyone have any clue?  I've also heard that there were sound recordings made of them by the Dowager Empress, but I don't know if that's just some silly folklore thing or not.

The Imperial Family / Re: OTMA - smoking and make up ?
« on: February 15, 2004, 04:22:02 PM »
From what I understand, all the girls smoked, and Alexandra smoked too.

Olga Nicholaievna / Olga's cat Vaska
« on: February 14, 2004, 10:23:07 PM »
Anyone know what happened to Olga's kitty Vaska?

1212
Hm, do you think she was Radzvilli, or was "Marfa" too nice to Alexandra to have been Radzvilli?  When I went to Stanford to check out some stuff (I am such a lame example of a teenager; my idea of fun is to go researching, haha!) I looked at Radzvilli's book but didn't feel like going to another library to get "Marfa"'s.

I've read that the Orthodox Church had been revering fake bones from the 20s or something (in Paris, I think).  Which would explain why they wouldn't acknowledge these bones.  Dunno if that's true or not.

The Alexander Palace / Re: Life in the Alexander Palace

All of those "postcards" were actually taken from Yale University's Beinecke Library Romanov Photo Albums -- http://highway49.library.yale.edu/romanov/default.htm.  Many pictures of the rooms!

The Myth and Legends of Survivors / Re: Anna Anderson and Anastasia
« on: February 04, 2004, 06:09:44 PM »
Looking at photos of all the girls, and then comparing them next to Nicholas who was 5'6, 5'7 (I think so), it looks to me like even if Anastasia is missing in the grave, the heights gotten from the extrapolated bones have to be wrong.  But I personally believe Tatiana is missing, so.
