~:About is a non-profit online library resource. Seeking to engage and educate inquiring minds in the history and culture of Imperial Russia strives to make typically unavailable resources accessible. had been in the making for five years before becoming available online in 2005. Wanting to give those who follow the Romanov Saga a different way to interact with the history of the Last Imperial Family of Russia. What we have to offer here is a bit different from your usual Romanov website.

~:About Laura:~

Hi! I'm your happy host Laura Mabee!
I am a Honour History graduate, with a special focus on Imperial Russian History. Hopefully in time I will become either a history professor, an archivist or a librarian!

With a similar passion to History, I am quite passionate about Animal Rights. Some of my favourite pastimes are reading, collecting Romanov related material (audiobooks, books, and documentaries), and playing video games.

I also am very passionate about music. Previously a flute and guitar player I am looking forward to learning piano. If you ever catch me around you'll notice I either have a book under my nose or an Mp3 player in my ears.

If you would like to contact me, let me know what you think about this Site, Comments, or Suggestions or even just to say 'Hi!', I would be more than happy to hear from you!
Just send me an email : lmabee @
