The Hohenzollern / Re: Question about and/or Help with Picture(s)

It is indeed a portrait of Cecilie Auguste Marie Duchess of Mecklenburg-Schwerin/Crown Princess of Prussia.  The German to English translation is incorrect.  The word "possibly" in the German description is that it was "possibly" painted from a photograph, not that it is "possibly' her.  It is a very flattering portrait of her.  I didn't know anybody even frequented this site anymore so I am glad I took a look today.  Kind regards, JGP

Does anybody know who might be the woman in the portrait, painted in Berlin by Fisher in 1906:

Update 05 27 2024
I believe my Great Grandmother's Russian Godfather is 1842-1908  Semyon Vasilyevich Kakhanov. Коханов Семен Васильевич.

Great Grandmother Katherine Boris Shelev from the Caucasus - Pyatigorsk area.

I have pursued the person matching the photo in order to see if I could find more information on my family - the family Boris Shelev.

I have no glory in finding this information unless it helps me go deeper in my family tree.  But I have not made that connection yet.

Then Aristarchus and I went to his house, the colonel's wife prepared all sorts of things, a lot - from her garden and vegetable garden. As a true Cossack woman, she preferred her own products and knew how to cook them deliciously. At lunch he would tell the news of St. Petersburg, invite them to come to us, but after February-March, since Masha and the little one would not go from Switzerland before, it?s probably better to even talk about mid-March.

Any word on Grif?s book?

Just checking in to see if there is any news on this project!

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!
