Any info on Grand duchess Olga's husband Kulikovsky family? Did he have any siblings? Any of them escaped Russia ?
There is lots info on Grand Duchess Olga but not much about her husband.
The Russian wiki says that Nikolai Kulikovsky father was at the Christining of his grandson Tihon in Crimea
Thank you

Looks like he was his parents' only child. They had large landholdings and his father was apparently a very harsh landowner in frequent, violent conflict with his peasants.
See http://ru.rodovid.org/wk/%D0%97%D0%B0%D0%BF%D0%B8%D1%81%D1%8C:808706
Берёзы севера мне милы,—
Их грустный, опущённый вид,
Как речь безмолвная могилы,
Горячку сердца холодит.

(Афанасий Фет: «Ивы и берёзы», 1843 / 1856)

Thank you Preved
My reading in Russian is very slow so it will take me a while to read it. :)
It's very interesting that nobody from his family have kept in touch with Leonid
I was always interested in GD Olga and her husband. All the years in Denmark with the old empress even thou she didn't like Olgas husband because of his  status. But they lived with her it must of been a strange living

Nikolai Kulikovsky seems to have reacted against his father rather than following his example.

Interesting article, but ultimately about the dispute between Maria Vladimirovna and the other Romanovs rather than about the Kulikovskys!

Interesting to note that Paul Kulikovsky bears quite a resemblance to Nikolai.

Yes, it is more about the inner-family dispute.
When I posted the link, I had not yet read the article myself.
I was expecting it to be a simple relating of the facts.
Oh well...

Is Olgas daughter-in-law Ruth Schwartz Kulikovsky, born 1921, still alive?

Does Olga A mention in any of her books about her Sanitary train being bombed in 1916?

Her hospital train WAS bombed but I believe she was not onboard at that time. I only have a pre-print proof draft of Vorres book(which I have not looked at in awhile?) where I believe it was mentioned? Not sure how or if it appeared in the final version or the reprint?

How about the other books:
25 chapters of my life

Life at War 1914-1918 the Photos, Paintings and Letters of Grand Duchess Olga Alexandrova

The incident is mentioned in Alexandra's 11 Sept 1916 letter to Nicholas no one was hurt
