I'm curious. Did anyone ever claim to be Michael?

Not that I know of. It would have been more complicated to pretend to be an older member of the Imperial Family who was more widely known. If Michael turned up, there was also less of an inheiritence that he could claim, and he had responsibilities to his wife and son, who survived. So perhaps there lay less of an advantage in claiming to be him.

It seems like I remember reading on this site a long time ago, before I got here, that someone was claiming to be Michael, still alive, or was it his grandson or something, and the guy got so bad he had to be banned? And this had something to do with the "Imperial claimants please post here" category being created? I could very well have this wrong so  someone who is a longer term member (I've been here over 2 years) can tell the story?

Someone also said once the reason no one claimed to be Michael because he was a full grown man and it would be harder to claim he had changed than a teenager.

Anyway I still want to know why no one on this forum questions Michael's death as told by the Bolsheviks, yet some completely disregard their accounts of A and A being killed, when in both cases no bodies were yet found? It must be the claimant connection.

Talk about 'one thing I find odd!'

The very fact that SEARCH does exist shows that there are a lot of people who believe in the murders enough to spend a hell of a lot of money, time and career respectability to look for bodies that may or may not exist.  Right?

The ONLY reason that SEARCH even exists is because the bones of Alexei and his missing sister have not yet been found...

The ONLY reason that SEARCH exists is because without those bones... there is NO PROOF of their suspected murders at Ipatiev!

Thank you Rachel. That is EXACTLY why the SEARCH Foundation continues its work. Our enthusiasm with every passing year has never waned. Our hopes are increasing guided by the new sophisticated scientific equipment that will be used.

I find it difficult to take your comments re: the missing children seriously. Firstly, because they show a complete lack of logic and a clear bias agains the work of the SEARCH foundation, and secondly, because your own belief that Alexei survived the execution and lived on well into the twentieth century, based on the ridiculous assumption that Alexei didn't have haemophilia after all, despite the family history of haemophilia, is clearly colouring your desire to push the theory that one GD and Alexei somehow magically escaped.  Great application of science there, might I add.

Keep up the good work, Margarita.

Thank you for your generous wishes Rachel.

Best wishes,

Margarita

Quite right John.

Why not show a modicum of respect for the hard working individuals who are doing their absolute best in helping to find the remains. It is most unworthy of you to discredit the SEARCH Foundation.

What is odd that no one wanted to claim that they were Mr Johnson!   ::)

I agree that it would be interesting to gather the evidence against Yurovsky, although there is probably a thread doing just that somewhere around here...

There are numerous contradictons concerning Yurovsky.

Well, claiming to be the descendants of a guy and claiming to be him are rather two different things.  ;) The first is the easier one to do, certainly. I think it is true that that is harder to claim to be a grown man than a teenager, and there is less advantage in it. But there have been many claims of various sorts connected with all the Romanovs who died, in some ways, because if they don't claim to be them, they claim to be their descendants. ;)

With the greatest of respect...

I have only stated the truth.  I have only stated that the only reason that SEARCH now exists is because the bones of Alexei and his missing sister have not been found.. and that without those bones there is no proof of their suspected murders at Ipatiev.
 
How can you possibly take offense with the truth?  How have you managed to interpret what is a perfectly true statement of fact as somehow discrediting the SEARCH Foundation?

The very name of the SEARCH Foundation says it all...

SEARCH -- the Scientific Expedition to Account for the Romanov CHildren -- would never have been formed in the first place... if the bones of those two missing Romanov children had already been accounted for.

Quite right Margarita dear! :) Keep up the good work. I look forward to the day when the hard work and persistance finally pays off & the last two members of this most explary family are laid to rest, in peace, with their loved ones. How lovely to think they would all be together again!! :)

In the physical form, and as deceased bodies, they are not together, but for those raised and buried in the Russian Orthodox Faith, they ARE together, and one with the Father above, God Rest Their Souls.

I am Roman Catholic but I feel just as strongly as if I were of the Orthodox faith, that God in his mercy most certainly would have rewarded their suffering by allowing them to be together in heaven and not have allowed anymore atrocities committed against them after their horrible deaths.  It is really only our souls that matter in the end.

Your ground breaking point being???

You're stating the obvious. Yes without bodies there is no concrete proof that Alexei and one of his sisters were murdered. Well done you for working that out. 

However, the overwhelming circumstantial evidence would suggest to anyone with a modicum of common sense that they were murdered with the rest of their family.  Unless of course Heino Tammet and Anna Anderson really were brother and sister and there has been a massive cover up over the faked deaths of two insignificant children of an ex tsar...some secret society, royalty's version of the Opus Dei, has been pulling the wool over our eyes for the past 80 years! Now that really would be groundbreaking! There is a Romanov bloodline after all! And it lives on....maybe we should make a movie about it.  I'm sure Tom Hanks would be well up for it!
