Read Your message and hope You will read mine. My greatgrandfathers sister Amalie married a man called Selig Sigmund? or Mischa von Taube, he went under the name the baron. He lived in Kursk and also in St.Petersbourg. He was a Bankier and owned a million virst of land, my grandmother used to tell about her uncle. He was given the titel baron for economical advice to the Zsar
He was a close friend of Tolstoj. And when the Zsar came to the city he staid with Amalie and her husband because their estate was the best in that city . I do not know if it is this man you write about? If so please write me back . My email is Xpheya@actcom.co.ilX
please remove the two x's from the adress before you write it.
Baron Taube had 3 sons and one daughter. The wife Amalie and daughter named Eugenia or Ivgenia?Irene or Ganja? were alive in Siberia in 1946 Both mother and daughter were Doctors , that is all I know.
