To those looking for their family roots all over in Europe and Russia etc...

I have got a work where there is a list of some 11 pages of people who are important and many are royalties, their tasks and professions, in this world some 125 years ago. I think many of you could be very interested in it as many could find there some name belonging to their relationships and families. But where could I publish that list? The work is such I am quite sure I can publish it and nobody asks anything. The book is printed in 1930.

The list is made around the great Finnish painter Albert Edelfelt (see Wikipedia) who has made the nice painting Queen Blanka, Rida, rida, ranka... to the stories of Topelius... and in his circles there is even Aurora Karamzin and he has drawn and painted her (see Wikipedia)... I have a lot text I would like to post somewhere but I suppose this is not the right place. I am related to Aurora Karamzin through just some few married couples of ancestors...

What can I do in order to get this list published? Has somebody some ideas? I suppose it is impossible to here publish pdf-texts or can I?

I can even see that a lot of people have been looking to my texts... they are not all only bullshit but here is really something strange going on and things developing to the direction it is not impossible we will face the WW3 who knows when and even very soon.

Having Fun! / OTMA's Little Women characters and Hogwarts houses
« Last post by Nictionary on February 22, 2024, 04:00:59 PM »
There's a discussion on r/Romanovs on which characters in Little Women OTMA would be.  There seems to be some consensus that Anastasia's personality aligns with Jo's.

I'm not qualified to posit my own guess as to Little Women, but it did make me wonder about OTMA's Hogwarts houses.  These are my guesses:
Olga: Ravenclaw
Tatiana: Ravenclaw
Maria: Hufflepuff
Anastasia: Gryffindor.

Russian Noble Families / Golovachev
« Last post by rpalmgre on February 14, 2024, 07:19:44 AM »
The Golovachev family was an old Russian noble family but they did not have a coat of arms. It seems they did not only live in Saint Petersburg but also in Tver region of Russia. I have researched back to Zakhar Alexeievich Golovachev who lived from 1782 to 1837. I have not found his manor or the area where he lived. I am new to Russian provinisial nobility. Do you know how to research that? What I have understood is that there should exist genealogical books for that kind of research. The Golovachev seems to be in the VI volume of Genealogical books of Tver province. What book is this? I have no idea what I am searching for.

Hey Sunifred! I didn't know that member reg has been suspended here. Anyway, I think it's better than having spammers infiltrating us here I guess majority of new member registrations have been from those. I still hope you'd be able to enjoy scouring through the threads here.

Also thanks for that vk link! I have lost all the Romanov-related links I have compiled through the years!

Unfortunately, new user registrations have been closed for some reason. And before that, registrations weren't being approved.

I recently discovered that there's a surprising amount of Romanov related content on TikTok. Of course, it's not the same, since you can hardly have any discussions there, and on top of that there's plenty of inaccurate information, but it shows that there's an interest.

Outside of the English speaking platforms, I recommend regularly checking https://vk.com/lastromanovs for new materials coming from the Russian archives.

Olga Nicholaievna / Re: Olga Photographs IV
« Last post by Sunifred on February 08, 2024, 12:15:55 PM »
This picture of Olga with her father and two guards, taken in 1917 after the revolution, reminds me of a quote by Klavdiya Bitner, who had become a tutor of the younger children in Tobolsk: "There were times when she smiled when you would sense that the smile was all on the surface, and that deep down inside her soul, she was not smiling, but sad."


It's clear that in this picture her smile is very forced

I wonder if there will be new members here as this forum is a treasure trove of all things Romanov and even of other royal/imperial families. I also miss those old days, but not sure if they'd come back. I talked to many people through the years I was inactive here, and I haven't met anyone who has taken interest with Romanovs (here in my Asian country). They consider this as "niche". Ah great to see you all here who are familiar names. Wishing everyone a wonderful life despite things!

Balkan Royal Families / Re: Obrenovich Family (except the Kings)
« Last post by Marc on January 23, 2024, 07:10:52 PM »
Only recently, it has been found out that in 1850, Prince Mikhail of Serbia has first proposed to Princess Maria Josepha of Liechtenstein (1835-1905).

Her father Prince Karl Joseph (1790-1865) declined, as Mikhail was an Orthodox and thought that she was too good catch for an upstart vassal dynasty. After that, Mikhail, who was at that time living in Vienna broke all contacts with this line of the Liechtenstein family. Due to this disappointment, he wrote a famous poem "Why do my thoughts torture me", which was previously thought that he wrote to his wife Julia.

Princess Maria Josepha of Liechtenstein later married Prince Ferdinand Bonaventura Kinsky von Wchinitz und Tettau (1834-1904).
