I would like your help to translate this writing Russian. is a picture of Saint John of Kronstadt  of 1899 ( Kiev ?) . I would understand if it was written by father John for someone or written by another person.  Thanks for the help.

OMG i simply don't understand the hand writing... O_o
i'll try to do what i can.
The first two words above, in a simpler handwriting = Za blagoslovenje   =litt "For a blessing", can translate "Bles you"
The date says "Kiev, 4/11 (= 4 november. I point it out because i know in USA you are used to put the month before the day, but in Russia they use the european way i.g. DAY - MONTH - YEAR)

i just can't understand any further because of the handwriting, but i hope i helped you a bit.

Hi Everyone
I have here three pages of Alexei's diary and letters in Russian from the book Tsesarevich. If anyone here knows Russian could you please translate them for me.
Thank you!
Stephen.

I've done the last page, i think it's the first chronologically

PAG 125 scan 5

28th march
Got up early. I studied and strolled. Had breakfast with Mama and sisters.
During the day walked and [litt: i rode. But this verb can be used for any means of transport. I guess he intends he rode his bike. I'm not sure, but i assumed it, i'm sorry if it's a mistake]. Went to Mama for tea and supper.
Supped at 6 o'clock. Went to bed early.

29th march
I got up as always. I studied and strolled. Had breakfast with parents [litt: with mine = my parents] and Isa [Buxhoevedn, i think]. Strolled and drove a little car [litt: a little engine, i suppose it's a sort of toy car for children?]. Lessons. Supper at 6. Studied for lessons [litt: "I prepared lessons" in russian means study for an exam or something].
Went to Mama for supper. Went to bed early.

30th March
Got up at half past 9. Studied and strolled. Had breakfast with Mama, OTMA and Trina [= Catherine Schneider, i suppose]. During the day rode bike and strolled. Supper with Mama. Supper with aunt Mavra [note says Elisaveta, wife of Grand Duke Konstantin Konstantinovich]
Went to bed early.

31st March
Woke up at half past nine. I studied and strolled. Had breakfast with M[arija] and A[nastasija]. During the day strolled and rode bike. Mama, O[l'ga] and T[at'jana] in town. Went to Mama for supper. Went to bed early (while) Mama, O. And T. Were in town.

1st april
Got up early. Studied and strolled. Had breakfast with Mama and OTMA. During the day strolled and rode bike. Supper at 6. supper with Mama. Went to bed early.

2nd april
Got up at half past nine. Studied and strolled. Had breakfast with Mama and OTMA. During the day strolled and rode bike. Supper at 6. supper with Mama. Went to bed early. Went to Mass.

3rd April  (from here it's not clear the first letters because of the scan: i try to understand anyway)
Strolled, went to Mass. Old aunt Ol'ga [and] Christophor [the note says: wife and son of the King of Hellenes] had breakfast with us.  During the day strolled and rode bike. Went to Mama for tea, Dmitrij too [Dmitrij Pavlovich]. Supepr at 6. Rode bike. Had supper with Mama. Went to bed as usual.
4th April
Got up early. Studied and strolled. Had breakfast with Mama and OTMA. During the day strolled and went to Mass. Went to Mama for supper. Supper at 6. went to bed early.

Oh thanks Sarah, it was written but i was so concentrated on the diary entries to translate i didn't notice.

Tsarevich Alexei, i can't read pag 177 well enough to translate. Is it possible for you a better scan to read the far right part of it? I have trouble to understand the first word of each line. If you can, i'll translate it too.
I've translated the only entry of page 178, however.

pag 178

24th December 1916
I got up late. After tea went for a walk. Had breakfast with my [parents and sisters].
During the day i rode my bike and played. I was at Kolja's [Kolja Derevenko, i suppose, Doc. Derevenko's son]. After supper i played. Went to Mama's. Went to bed early.



As you already know i'm not english mothertongue, so if my english is rough, i'm sorry; i hope you'll understand anyway. It was a bit hard work because it was a double translation for me (russian - italian and then italian - english) but i had so much fun doing it, also because Alexei is very concise and uses easy words, so it's not hard to understand at all. Thank you for the opportunity you gave me!

I hope this is the right thread. Otherwise... mods, help me please.

I have this photo labeled both as Anastasia AND as Maria. But i simply can't decide WHO really is.
Ideas?

I think it's more likely Maria, but...

The girl is Maria. Here you have a close-up of her face where you can see it a bit clearer, although the quality is not the best:

Can anyone tell me what movie this is from? It can't be real, although it looks old, but I doubt it.

Of course it's not real footage.

I know it's older but I can't remember the title of the film. Many parts of it are featured in the Russian documentary Revenge of the Romanovs.
"Господь им дал дар по молитвам их размягчать окаменелые наши сердца за их страдания..Мне думается, что если люди будут молиться Царской Cемье, оттают сердца с Божией помощью."

Hi! Sorry, I keep asking questions! But this was labeled as Alexei on a site and I saw it on one of his threads here, but honestly, it looks a little like Tatiana, Sorry for my ignorance!
