I know this might sound silly, but everytime I see photos of the Tsars daughters olga is the most beautiful !  Could it be that beauty changes ?  She always appears more handsome than her sisters. Tatiana does keep quite an elegant pose. But marie does nothing and Anastasia  is Okay.  Said she died so young F.

I havnt read any of this but, in  1968 in Holy Cross Church in N.Y.C. the nuns maid  us  read a book Communisn and Everything You should Know, it had the family photo of the Romanovs from about 1914,  I was hooked! At that age  I could'nt unerstand the  passion one photo caused. But its life long. F.

Belochka, Why would Sophie Buxhoeveden have gotten such a high rank if she was the daughter of an Ambassdor ?  And I read somewhere that Countess Hendrikov's mother was a Princess. Where the daughters of noble princesses titled countesses ?  Two things i wondered about. F.

Hello all, just read some of this,one mentioned Alexandra's paintings , the Hillwood  in Washington D.C. Has the largestest selection of  Romanov paintings  I've seen outside of Russia. And I've been to Russia 3 times.There are at least from life 3  paintings of Alexandra. AND Many other Romanovs. Plus the famous one of Serge Obolensky,done during the revolution in the Crimea. Its the American jackpot,thanks to Margorie Merryweather Post.All people interested in the Romanovs need to see this place.Photos signed by the Grand Duchesses, Faberge, jewels, if its Imerial Russian she had it. Its the largest colllection outside of Russia.  F. P.S. I have the # if any one wants it

 Hi, I forgot but  Grand Duchess Elizabeth  M. wife of Konstantine left Russia with her lady for Sweden. Saved by the Swedish Queen Victoria.

Belochka, All female members of the family had Ladies,all taken from the noblity. If you read biograbhies you can find mention of them.  I think G.D. Xenia has her lady mentioned in the book about her. Of course not as many as an Empress.Sorry if spelling is bad, not wearing glasses. F.

Ammie,  If it helps the # is 845-356-0425, it shouldnt be to far from Our Lady of Kursk,which I think is in Maopac, I cant remember how to spell it,but if your from that area you know what i mean. They also have a cemetery and nice church. Let me know what you find,  F

Janet, yes Our Lady of Kursk is just out of N.Y.C. If he died in the city he might be buried closer, being that  Jordanille is so far north. At Kursk they had a very important icon from Russia until 1948 so it was an important church.  And Kursk is an area north of the Caspian Sea,so the sub was most likely named after it. Well he wasnt buried there but the interesting thing I found out is that the largest Russian cemetery is the Novo-Viveevo Convent in Spring Valley N.Y. The spelling may be wrong because the man was trying to spell it in English. I will try it and Holy Trinity in Jordanville soon. I have all the numbers if anyone is looking for people, so I can give them to anyone who wants  them F.

The Von Pistollkers had estates in the Baltic States,  they fled to them during the the revolution.  PS Writing without glasses so be kind.

The Empresses Ladies fell  in a  pecking oder, she didnt have much to say.  It seems she was closer to her Maids of Honor .When they married most left.

I'am a former N.Y. er who lives in R.I. but knows Jordanville and can check it, let  Me know  Felix

 Anna V. was not what Radzinsky said she was. She  loved the Empress more than the Czar.  Like Sophie Buxhoeveden  dont believe  what you read. They cant back up there claims.
