The Tsar and the Imperial Family attended their wedding

A couple of weeks ago I made a video about the wedding of my maternal grandparents, Olga and Paul Woronoff, for the YouTube channel “In the Steps of the Romanovs” created by Helen Azar. Helen has translated and published the diaries of the Grand Duchesses, and has found a few references to my grandparents. Unfortunately no photos of my grandparents wedding survived.

I hope you enjoy this first effort of mine!

    Es ist wirklich bewundernswert, wie Du die Familiengeschichte aufrollst!! Wolf wäre sicher glücklich gewesen, hätte
    er von dem Ausmaß Deiner Forschung Kenntnis gehabt. Du hättest seine Arbeit fortführen können.
    Liebe Grüße

      Danke Kirsten! Ich vermisse Wolf wirklich. Wenn ich nur besseres Deutsch hätte, hätte ich gerne seine Arbeit fortgesetzt.
