Tatiana living in the USA

March 29, 1921

Harold Veo, who says he was "formerly a member of the Imperial Orchestra of Russia, and now resides in Birmingham, has told the New York Times that the "Czar of Russia and his family were not murdered, but escaped to America in disguise in the Summer of 1918."  He adds that the Imperial family is now living in the United States, probably in California."

He also asserts that the Grand Duchess Tatiana "preceded the family here" and is now married to an American waiter in Jersey City,  New Jersey.  Mr. Veo says he has met the Grand Duchess and her husband.

According to Washington officials, "no credence" is given to the story from Birmingham that the "Grand Duchess Tatiana is the wife of a waiter in Jersey City."

Practically "no doubt" exists that Nicholas II, his wife, Alexandra, and their five children were murdered at Ekaterinburg in July 1918.
