Thanks for the update, griffh (Griffith) So many here on the Forum miss your a work and posts and your wonderful ongoing thread re Alexandra. Do chime in whenever you can on her or any others of the Imperial Family (or others) regarding nursing work, other efforts during the War, or for that matter anything of interest regarding them. We admire you whether you're an amateur or a "pro".


Thanks so much Rodney for your kind remarks.  I miss sharing on the AP forum so much and can't wait to get back.  thanks again Griff

You are such a great friend Laura and thanks again for leading me N. K. Zvereva's book, Avgusteĭshie sestry miloserdii︠a︡.  That was a great help as I simply could not find a copy anywhere and I was able to get a download the book but the entire last section, i.e. Vilchkovskys reports on the 80+ hospitals she supervised in the greater Tsarskoselski district , motor squads, etc. were missing.   So thank again for your help.  best Griff

Hey Janet where was that photo of you on FB taken?  It ls a great photo and looks like somewhere in Europe.  Thanks so much for your continuing support.  I will never forget how you softened my view of Anya V. by posting those photos of her in her hospital bed.  Rudy sent me the Finnish publication of her second book and again I was startled at how little she changed but her mother went from looking like a distinguished Tolstoy aristocrat to a androgynous worn out old peasant.  I couldn't help thinking that Anya's mother carried Anya though the tragedy of their lives.  But again I could be completely wrong.  I don't know if you have read "Former People" yet but there is a photo of Princess Trubetskoy just before her death in Butyrki prison in 1943 and it was so much like what happened to Anya's mother, only in the Princess' case, she looked like she had died a long time ago.   Mme. Taneeva had the same haunted look, as if her identity had been tortured out of her. 

Well forgive me for sort of bringing things down with those remarks as it was so good to hear from you and everyone....I hope that everyone is having a joyful holiday season, even though all of our hearts have been torn by the terrible events of yesterday in Conn. 

Best, Griff

Stil waiting for the book! We miss the thread though ... do you think, maybe after the book, we could have it back?
Have a nice summertime, all of you!

Well finally I can report that my first article on Empress Alexandra's War Relief Work is appearing in the March 2014 Royalty Digest Quarterly which will be available soon.  The magazine is also publishing an article by Janet Ashton on Queen Marie and her swashbuckling American admirer, Samuel Hill.  Janet has been so incredibly supportive over the years that I am so thrilled that my article is appearing in the same issue as her. 

It has been a long journey but very exciting non-the-less and just to say how much I owe AP discussion forum as I met so many individuals who have remained such wonderful friends. 

Once I return from England in the middle of April I will start a new thread on Empress Alexandra which will allow individuals to question or comment on the articles as they appear.   

Just a final thank you for all the support and encouragement I have received from everyone who contributed to my thread on the Empress.... :)

I just wanted to add a note and say that by the time my last article is published in Royalty Digest Quarterly, I should be close to finishing my book. 

Again thank everyone who has been so supportive....

Congratulations , Griff!
The issue is already available, and I just ordered a copy from Van Hoogstraten Online Shop, The Hague.

That's wonderful news! I look forward to that moment. :)

Thanks, Griff - and I now have my copy with your wonderful article - so nice to see it in print at last, and so well-deserved!

You have even longer footnotes than Greg and I do on ours - which is also in a big way about the majestic Columbia River as well as Queen Marie and Sam and the Maryhill Museum, because that great wide rolling strip of water and its bleak yellow banks, along with Seattle and Portland, absolutely inspired the article!  :-)

Thanks so much historyfan...the photographs in the first article are pretty standard, even though I love them, but the second article will have some unpublished photos which I think will be interesting...
