Actually, if anyone's interested, you can read The Rosary online by clicking here

WOW. Thanks so much for the link!  8)

No problem.  :) Have you read it at all yet?  If so, is it any good?

Palace receipts and records. Another thing that is easier to do, is to look for books they refer to having read in their letters or diaries.  Many of these old books are fairly easy to find and are not very expensive. Now, they may not be the very single book that they read and had on their shelf, which would be worth a lot of money, but you can own and read the exact same book they did for just a few dollars.  We have four of five such volumes here.

How and where on Earth were you able to obtain copies of reciepts?  That is amazing.

Admission to GARF has been discussed before in the forum. Use the search function.

I put GARF in the search function and guess what I got.  The last three replies on this thread.  Anyone have any idea where the info on GARF is?  Thank-you

Very odd. I just put "GARF" into the search engine for the forum and got about 150 different threads going back. Make sure you click all threads and several years.

Hey guys,I was searching for the  perfume and when I was on google,I came across a page about the founder of Coty and a list of perfume products

I saw one named La Violette pourpre and it came out in 1906

well,I haven't found a picture for it,and if this is Anastasia's perfume and the perfume has the name pourpre in it(the name pourpre is crimson in another language) then the perfume bottle might have a hint of pourpre in it

P.S if anyone doesn't know what the color Crimson is,it's a strong,bright,deep red color combined with some blue,resulting in a tiny degree of purple

I read that Alix loves Wagner while Nicholas satisfied himself listening to the Composite Battalion’s balalaika players and various operas, how about her children? What songs do they listen to and what musical pieces do they play on their piano (especially her because she's the most excellent on piano)? Hmmm…Any information?

Amazing colored fotos  by the most wonderful Yelena Aleksandrovna. Endless thank you very much!

Playing balalaika, as well as for music, Russian folk, (classic 19th pieces od Russian musicians too) I assume.  I wonder what must they have listened in Kiev's Opera in 1911?

There is photo of her playing piano.

The Imperial Party was attending a performance of Rimsky-Korsakov's opera 'Tsar Sultan' at the Kiev Opera House in September 1911, when Piotr Stolypin was shot and later died.

Hello all, I was just looking through the At Home with the Last Tsar and His Family catalog and noticed in the Checklist of Objects section no. 189: Twenty-two notes passed between the Grand Duchess Tatiana Nikolaevna and Grand Duchess Olga Nikolaevna at dinners during a cruise aboard the yacht Standart ...

I know that the family often sent notes to one another, and that this practice was normal for the age, but was unaware that this was possibly done at the dinner table. I'm trying to imagine HOW this would be accomplished and most of my imaginings are quite silly, if not absurd! Would they write these notes before hand? Or were they somehow scribbling notes on their laps while everyone, guests included, was at the table? Or could this entry possibly be an error? It's quite perplexing! Any thoughts or insight is greatly appreciated.

Now that would be interesting if it's true... I can see it now: they're all dining having dinner all of the sudden (say Maria's between them) all of a sudden Olga nudges her with a whisper "Maria... MARIA pass this on to Tatiana" or the other way around with Tatiana to Olga "Maria... MARIA pass this on to Olga" and all of this done under the table lap between lap! It's actually kind of funny to think about which is why I've been laughing about it the whole time I've been writing this post! Of course if done secretly they'd would've had to have a "go between" that they could trust of course!

I hadn't even considered a sister as a go between - I was thinking somehow a footman/server would be involved. But, yes, a sister makes total sense. At first glance this practice, if true, seems incongruous with the image of royalty, but then there are the stories of Alexei placing a strawberry in a female guest's shoe and Nicholas II and his siblings pelting each other with rolled up bread at the table when they were young. Thanks for responding!
