Re: [S-R] Re: Tsar Nicholas
- Frank , Bill and Richard, thanks for the information on the Tsar.
I was talking to my mother and we think that it could have been my g-grandmothers brother that was a bishop. I don't know which diocese it would have been other than my g-grandmother was born in Kazan and my grandmother was born in Samara. They emmigrated to the westcoast in about 1908 but her sibblings never came with her. She had several pictures of priests and Bishops, which my mother still has but no names of who they are. I am not sure how to find out exactly where this would have taken place in Russia. My grandmother and her mother always attended the Russian Orthodox Church in San Francisco. My g-grandmother was born about 1866 but I don't know anything about her sibblings.
I really appreciate all of the information and sites that has been given , I find it very interesting reading and have learned so much with all of the help that so many given from this list.

> Frank, you give so much helpful information on history that Iknow everyone enjoys. I was just curious if you knew much about
Tsar Nicholas II ? I know pretty much of the history but was curious
how to find out who his bishops were? My g-grandfather I beleive
was one of his bishops but I am not sure as of yet what his name was.
I only know what my mother has told me and that is not much
except it was her grandfather. I wasnt aware that he had bishops?
Nicholas II of Russia (1868-1918)
Tsar of Russia (1894-1917)
Nicholas II, son of Czar Alexander III,
as born in the year of 1868. As a child
he was educated by Pobyedonostev, the
lay head of the Russian Orthodox
Church. In 1894, he took on the role of
czar after his father's death. Nicholas II
wanted to keep the same autocratic rule
that his father had, and that was the
basis of his reign as czar.
If your g-GF had been a Russian Orthodox bishop there
is about a 20 year period during which this could have
More important, he was a Bishop of what and where ?
And Bishop of what Diocese then, not today ?
Believe Russian Orthodox priests were given a choice of marriage
or celibacy ?
