The key phrase here is "personally present".
As was the custom among royalty, any number of relatives could have been named as (honorary) Godparents -- whether present or not.
When Tsesarevich Alexis was born, Tsar Nichols II declared all the soldiers in the active army fighting the Japanese as his godfathers.
Well, since the first move, described above, we were transferred again to a new monastery.
That entailed moving, getting settled, building, setting up, and putting a new schedule and regime in place.
Everything else got put on the back burner for a few years.
However we have always kept plugging away at this project.
In the meantime we have found even more letters, and have discovered a lot more information on the recipients.
We now have over 500 letters.
No predictions on when we will go to print, but no one wants to see this published more than we do.

Would anyone happen to know who were the godparents of Princess Tatiana Konstantinovna?

[Rough translation:]
A month after the birth of the princess, on Feb. 5, took place the baptism of the princess in the church of the Marble Palace in St. Petersburg, in the presence of members of the Imperial Family. Those receiving her from the font [i.e., Godparents] who were personally present at the ceremony were: Empress Maria Fedorovna, spouse of Emperor Alexander III, Grand Duchess Maria Pavlovna, spouse of Grand Duke Vladimir Alexandrovich, Grand Duke Sergei Alexandrovich, and Grand Duchess Ekaterina Mikhailovna, daughter of Grand Duke Michael Pavlovich. Emperor Alexander III also attended this family celebration.

I would tell Alix to write to Kaiser Franz Joseph to stop him from sending Archduke Franz Ferdinand to Sarajewo.

Great news!  I remember when you gave a presentation on this topic!

Any idea when it will be published?

I was just thinking about this project! I'm so glad that you're almost ready for publishing!
