I just joined today.  I am looking forward to spending a lot of time on this board!  I have been interested in the Romanovs for the last 20 years (at least).  I love reading books about royalty anway, but the Romanovs are my favorite.  I also love reading books about Russian history and culture.  Grand Duchess Elizabeth is probably my favorite.  I keep an icon of her in my prayer corner (I'm Orthodox), and several women in my parish who have been received into the church the last couple of years have chosen her as their patron saint.  I also like Anastasia and Tsar Nicholas II. 

I have quite a collection of books on the Romanovs and quite a few on Russian history and culture. 

I live in Billings, Montana, and moved to Montana in 1991 from South Carolina.  I miss the ocean (and Southern cooking and the Southern accents), but Montana has incredible scenery and is very beautiful in its own way. 

I am looking forward to getting to know all of you, and learning even more about the Romanovs!  I enjoyed reading the article on St. Tikhon, who was the Patriarch of the Russian Church in 1917 and had spent several years in the States before going back to Russia.

Hello!

I have been lurking around here for a while and have enjoyed all your messages and especially the pictures so much I finally decided to join in.

I have been interested in Russian culture and history since I took Russian as an extra language at high school over 20 years ago. Unfortunately I didn't have a great success with the language, but luckily the interest in the culture and history persisted. I'm Finnish, and as you all know, Finland and Russia have a long history to share. But it was my mother who then got me interested in the Romanov family. She has been a keen diy historian of the Romanovs for the past 20 years and has a huge collection of books, dvd's, postcards, pictures and all things related. She even has some glass negatives of the family photographs. We probably speak more about the Romanovs than about our own relatives! So far we have been in St. Petersburg twice, and have visited all the important places, including the Alexander Palace - and the most memorable of all, the basement shrine at the Feodorovsky Cathedral. There was a restoration work going on, but seeing the shrine was one of the most powerful emotional experiences in my life.

I hope I will have some contribution to make to the forum, maybe a picture you haven't seen already - if that's possible - or something. First I have to spend some more time investigating all the picture links in order to find out the pictures that you already are familiar with, and read some more messages in order not to ask anything silly.

Looking forward to exciting and interesting time in the forum among you kindred spirits!

Welcome, Maaria!

For the second time in less than a day, I would like to have the extreme pleasure of complimenting someone whose writing in English is so fine that a reader would naturally assume it was their native language!

I have been interested in the Russian Royal Family for years. My parents lived in Rota, Spain in the late 50's and early sixties. My godmother, Princess Alexandra of Hohenlohe-Langenburg, "Dolly" and a friend of my parents  the Infanta Beatrice were both descendants of Grand Duchess Marie Alexandrovna of Russia. I never  knew  either of them because they both died when I was very young. I have often wondered what impact of the execution of Czar Nicholas' family had on my godmother's family. My parents are both dead but I have been able to verify all the stories the Royals told  to them.

Hello

My name is Ralf De Jonge and as a child I collect all kind of stuff about Queen Elisabeth of Belgium and her Bayern sisters.

I am also the auther of the dutch books: "Koningin Elisabeth, zwierige vorstin in woelige tijden" en "Koningin Fabiola, vrome vorstin in een vluchtige wereld".

Looking for photo's off her elder sister Sophie at older age, also Elisabeth at older age.  Can anyone help me?

I have a lot of photo's, but I do not know how to post them here in the forum... can anyone say how to do that?

Thanks

Ralf De Jonge

Welcome Ralf & Leonore!

Leonor, that is very interesting and I hope you will be able to share your stories with us on our boards!

Ralf, I would suggest uploading them to a photo account such as photobucket or, my personal favorite, imageshack. You'll find the photos of the people you are looking for somewhere here on the boards; try the BeLeNux(???) threads. :D
