What a lovely site! I've been visiting the APTM for years but only recently discovered the forum.

I'm Russian through my father, German through my mother; born and raised in Minnesota; currently living in the Denver area; happily married to a military man and raising two sons and two dogs. I have an M.S. in Criminal Justice from Auburn University, with a little ambition I may even use it someday....

My interests include the Romanov, Tudor and Windsor families; the Caucasus region (my heart belongs to the people of Beslan and Armenia); Nazi Germany; what it means to be Christian in the 21st century and...on a lighter note...books of all kinds and dogs of all kinds!

I look forward to learning from everyone!

So. I've just realiser that i've never presente myself. :) So, I'll start with the .. basics ?

I'm born in Canada and living in the province of Quebec, in a little town. So, my first language is French & I beg your pardon for my bad spelling & writing :)

Like the major part of the "youngest" members, I'll just learned about the Romanovs with the movie Anastasia by Fox. And one day, I've juste decided to learn more about the real stroy, and since that day, I'm just addicted.

The major part of my friends thinks that i'm obsessed.. or.. maybe a bit strange to be so interested to a "family who was killed". So I'm really happy to be in this forum because I just feel that some people can understand what I feel. I'd like to thank all the members, because I learned a much when I was reading the topis, so Thank You all. :)

Bienvenue au Forum, Katrynn!

C'est cool de voir qu'il y'a d'autres Québécois qui sont des fans des Romanovs!  :)

Ben non! Y'en a au moins un autre!  ;)

Et pour ce qui est de tes amis qui te regardent drôle parce que t'aimes les Romanovs, je sais ce que c'est! Mais c'est pas grave! J'ai beaucoup appris par les livres (surtout ceux de Robert Massie, Edvard Radzinsky, et même le controversé Fate of the Romanovs, si tu peux, lis-les, ça va te donner une bonne base), mais j'ai bien plus appris encore ici sur le forum!

J'espère que tu vas aimer ça ici, et que tu vas poster des messages instructifs, toi aussi!  :)

Hi everyone!

*looks around* Well look at this fancy place! I'm shocked that I didn't discover this board years ago!

Quick introduction. My name is Leah, I'll be 18 in a little over a month, I live just outside of Toronto (that's in Canada). Like many others, the Romanov story was brought to my attention when I was quite young... I do believe I was reading about the new Fox film to be released that speculated on the possible survival of Grand Duchess Anastasia. Needless to say, I was hooked by the possibility, and scrambled to the library before sitting down to watch the film (which was a huge disappointment for me!!!) So far most of my learning has been through reading and researching on my own time... I've read a fair few of Edvard Radzinksy's books, which I quite like... not to mention two stellar biographies of Alexandra Feodorovna... pity, I forget the author and the name since it was so long ago! I've been a bit of a history buff since age 9 and I've been through my phases... after the Romanovs I went in the direction of Classical Greece and the Roman Republic and haven't turned back, so I'm probably a little rusty on my Romanov facts ;) However I plan to double major in History and Classical Studies when I move on to university next year and I am taking two courses in my third year that cover Imperial Russia. Should be a treat!

I look forward to reading all the posts here. What a heaven! Once I'm done reading this board, everything will have come back to me!

I live in KY while my sister and six cats- we take in homeless and they are about to make us homeless! Just kidding- I love them all.

Hi everyone!

I've been reading your forum for sometime, and found it wonderful. I love the fact that I can find both historical information, and trivia as well. I am greatly interested in history, and the Russian history has always fascinated me.

Personally I am very happy not to live in a monarchy, and I am not impressed by empires and nobility. But I do like the Romanovs, and I want to learn everything I can on pre-revolutionary Russia. Maybe it's because I've always felt that the Russian culture is not at all what I could see growing up (cold war etc). Maybe because the belle epoque (and it's style) is my favorite era. Maybe because I am trying to learn the Russian language, so poetic and beautifully complex.

Who cares about reasons! I am just happy to be here!  :)

Greetings to all.

I have spent hours on this website and have recently registered as a member.  I would like to thank you for the delight and erudition you have brought into my life.   My first introduction to the Romanovs was as a little girl reading Life Magazine.  If memory serves me, some time during the early "60's there was a picture of Anna Anderson at her compound in Germany with a caption explaining that she claimed to be the daughter of the last Tsar, etc.  That caption peaked an interest of almost 50 years.  For me, the vast march of history becomes more understandable in its personalities and their stories rather than a more analytic approach of events. How grateful I am to have found you all.  Lesley

I'm fairly new... I'm a writer and law student in California who came across this site in an unusual way.  During one of my few free periods, I was researching the Victorian Era for a novel I'm (sloooowly) working on, and I came across the photos of Victoria's World website.  I finally got a good look at her and all of her children and grandchildren.  I noticed that a couple of Victoria's children had died young and wondered about the cause.  So I looked up Alice's biography on Wikipedia and was not only awed by Alice herself, but discovered "Oh, she was her mother??"  From there, I had to learn more... about everything.  I found this site and have been absorbed ever since.  It's a wonderful resource that I could get absolutely lost in and forget all of my studies if I'm not careful...

A huge welcome to mprosarion, Lesley and wildone! I'll bet you guys are going to learn a LOT here and that you'll enjoy yourselves. It's easy to get lost in the majesty of Russian history (I know I have) and that's awesome!

Anyways, hope y'all enjoy the site!
