Having Fun! / Vocal Ranges
« on: April 29, 2007, 08:11:21 PM »
There was always so many people talking about the IF's musical talents, did anyone ever mention their vocal ranges? I think I remember Olga N. being described as a mezzo-soprano, but that's all I've heard.

It's amazing how talented they all were. They painted and drew very well, and accounts say they played instruments and sang well. I'm a very horrible sounding alto, I'm a bit jealous.  :D

Romanov and Imperial Russia Links / Google Earth
« on: April 07, 2007, 10:03:22 PM »
I've tried, but failed. Can anyone find any buildings, like the Alexander Palace, on it? If you can, a screenshot would be lovely! If you're really good, maybe you could find the mansion in Tobolsk, or the field where the Impatiev house stood. I may have found Livadia, but I can't be sure.

Romanov and Imperial Russia Links / Magazine article from 1912?
« on: February 15, 2007, 11:31:48 PM »
In FOTR, they mentioned an article written in 1912, talking about royal families, and how OTMA led gloomy lives because of their overprotective mother constantly over them. Does this article exist somewhere on the web?

Alexandra Feodorovna / Alexandra as a Nurse
« on: February 13, 2007, 12:21:06 AM »
Did Alix have any problems when trying to help wounded soldiers, since she was born in Germany, the country they were fighting? I know a lot of people were saying she was a spy, but I've never heard of how patients treated her.

The Final Chapter / Anastasia shot at?
« on: December 16, 2006, 04:35:48 PM »
I read in the Romanovs and Mr. Gibbes that in Tobolsk or Ekaterinburg, can't remember which, Anastasia was shot at for leaning out of a window. Any truth to this? I would think not, because Nicholas and Alexandra wouldn't have stayed quiet if one of their children were shot at, but you never know. ???

Romanov and Imperial Russia Links / My new site
« on: December 12, 2006, 11:39:25 PM »
It's nowhere near done, but I thought I'd share it. Ignore any spelling mistakes, the spellcheck seems to be on the fritz. It's my first ever website, so I'm still experimenting.

The Last Imperial Children of Russia

Having Fun! / Redoing Romanov Photos!
« on: December 03, 2006, 02:49:24 PM »
Here's a fun game. Collect your siblings, friends, and cousins, and torture them by making them stand and get those Romanov photos perfect! This one is far from perfect, because my sister was getting annoyed, and my cousin hates standing still. Not to mention the huge age gap between my sister and cousin, but oh well, we tried.

We were trying to do this one.

Having Fun! / A silly question for the holidays
« on: November 26, 2006, 09:25:41 PM »
Did OTMAA believe in something the equilivent(sp?) of Santa Claus when they were younger? I know many countries have their version of Santa Claus, and I'm sure Russia does, too. I just thought of this while I was coloring photographs and listening to Santa Baby.  ;)

The Imperial Family / OTMA - 'look'
« on: September 17, 2006, 08:11:01 PM »
I wonder because in this picture, Maria's hair is a lot longer than it is in this one. The first picture was taken a few years before the second, I believe.

Having Fun! / Compare your colored pics...
« on: September 11, 2006, 05:02:34 PM »
Even though I'm not as good as I wish I was, I'm happy my pictures don't turn out like this anymore! Well, for the most part.  ;)

One of my better ones.

Let's see some of your older ones compared with your newer!

Having Fun! / Why did OTMA never have their own rooms?
« on: April 19, 2006, 03:44:32 PM »
I remember a letter Maria wrote to her father, and she mentioned wanting to have her own room. Maybe Nikolai and Alix thought that would be spoiling them too much? I've also wondered what would have happened if Anastasia had been a boy, and they would have had only three girls. Would OT have their own room, and M her own room? Or would they all three have shared one? I know we don't have any real answers, but it's interesting to think about.

Whenever I try to open a very old thread, I get something like this:
104 An Error Has Occurred!: Unable to open 1123519043.txt

Sorry if this has been addressed, but is this something normal for the new boards?

A classmate of mine was killed in a car accident yesterday, and I hear is mother is doing horribly. I just ask for you to keep his family and friends in your thoughts. Thanks. :'(
