S02EP05 - 'The Noble' with Marina Brizhatova
In this fifth episode, The Noble, host Andrew Martin is joined by professional genealogist Marina Brizhatova. She'll be explaining what it's like to research ancestry in Russia, what kind of records are available, and how she got into genealogy.
Relatively Speaking - Vladimir Udovenko
Marina chose her step-mother's great grandfather Vladimir Udovenko as her Life Story to tell, and this is a story of a secret identity, but not a voluntary one. It wasn't until many years after Vladimir's death, that the truth about his noble origins came to light - a complete surprise for his descendants.
The Brick Wall - Aleksey Grigoryevich Sarychev
Marina's Brick Wall is actually mid-way through the life of Aleksey Grigoryevich Sarychev. He and his family had lived in Nyukhovets, in the Ryazan region of Russia for generations until 1812 when all of a sudden they left for another village called Chernobayevo. Then, when the next Revision Tale took place, they'd returned.
Can you help Marina identify why the family suddenly left their ancestral base, only to return later? Were they escaping something? Were they forced to leave?
Marina accepts Andrew's offer of help, but her nervousness might be entirely justified...
