(Aug. 9, 2019) — On July 22, 2019 the author, J (Johannes) Froebel-Parker, was interviewed on The Morning Show with Garrett Roche on Hudson, New York radio channel 90.7 FM (WGXC) about research in the claims of aka “Evgenia Smetisko” that she was in fact HIH Grand Duchess Anastasia Nicholaevna Romanov of Russia. Adult English as New Language students were listening live giving them an opportunity for listening comprehension, new vocabulary and expressions. Listener, Victoria Signorelli, called in to ask about the date of birth on the grave of aka “Smetisko” which is not that on any of her immigration and travel documents but rather that of the youngest Russian grand duchess-18 June 1901. Roche brought up the fact that KGB defector of renown, Michael Goleniewski, had met aka “Smetisko” who he told the CIA was Anastasia, and that the conversation was taped and sent to the Justice Department. Froebel-Parker explained that royal tutor, Charles “Sydney” Gibbes, had met various times with aka “Smetisko” in the UK, and that the latter had received his extensive and priceless Romanov Collection at his death. Most of these items were then bequeathed to the Museum of Russian History at Holy Trinity Monastery, Jordanville, New York, at her death. In addition, she arranged for a sizable annuity in perpetuity to insure that the museum would always be funded. This is a continuing story for which WGXC has shown much interest as it has a local angle in the author and a regional aspect in the location of the grave at the monastery.
