Hello and welcome to my portfolio of my non-library work. I am a genealogist and thoroughly enjoy historic research. If I think of a topic, I usually research it out. Over the past decade I also discovered that I have a creative streak that I never knew I had.
My first post I will feature something that I did in High School: a textbook on the Romanovs focusing on the Tsar Nicholas II. I got into the Romanov family watching a documentary on Anna Anderson and researched them out.
It was in 1998 when Russia buried the Last Tsar and members of his family. The story of their murder caught my attention and made me fall in love with history.
Sadly, I did not know that I should cite my sources, however I did get a lot of the material from the Alexander Palace Time Machine and the Livadia website.
I'm a librarian with an active imagination who likes to create. Genealogist and Researcher.
