Background Information

From the arrival of the Viking warriors and how this can be traced and understood, to the fall of the Romanov Empire are excellently drawn together. Spanning Old Russia to the Russian Diaspora, the content provides much historical information sourced from a diverse collection of Russian chronicles and history. However the human interest of Alexander’s family of Russian colonists is continually brought to the fore through the interweaving of personal accounts, reflection and, as the author attests, an anthropological and forensic application to what he recalls and has been told.

Available in softcover & e-book format from major online book stores including:

Amazon, Xlibris and Barnes & Noble

ODYSSEYA - An Epic Journey from Russia to Australia ISBN 978-0-646-48901-8
Thirst for my family history and compiling genealogical data required much research and was a lengthy exercise, but it helped to streamline the thinking process. The libraries in the local Russian Community in Sydney Australia rather than the internet gave better results. I found out things about my paternal grandfather that I did not know, about his schooling and university career in Harbin China, about his participation in the Russian mini Olympics in St Petersburg in 1912 for young Sokols Ė high school sporting hopefuls. He was one of four young, school staffers who accompanied the Harbin delegation to St Petersburg where they scored a second place. Among other things I was able to deduct what led to his early marriage and its failure and finally the month and year of his death and burial place at the age of 39 after torture by the Japanese occupying forces. The research of the KGB files in Moscow by an intermediary, explained things to me about my fatherís first incarceration in a GULAG in Siberia shortly before the death of his father caused by the occupying Japanese army, as well as my fatherís second incarceration after WWII when I was a child of three. But most of my information came by word of mouth from my relatives, many older friends and particularly my mother to whom I dedicated the book, as she dedicated her life to us, so that my sister and I could have a better home here in Australia.
