I want to learn(find out) about the relatives. On the modest data, it concerns living in France, England. Less - America, Canada. Letters I write at once in English and French. Mother of my grandfather (Demidov Maxim Andreevich), has divorced at the end of 19 centuries from nobleman Andrey Demidov from city of Tula, but has left a surname and with children has left to live for a countryside - Tambovskaia gubernia, village Konoplianka. Not all younger generation was according to with divorce and continued to meet till 1917. Before October revolution. The ambassador many relatives from Tula have left abroad Russia and communications(connections) have broken up. Respond, ???????? if remember from your parents the specified facts! Yours faithfully, from Moscow Alexander Demidov. Bonjour messieurs, qui connaît(sait) et est sur de l'appartenance vers des nobles - Demidov. Quelques mots sur les racines de la généalogie, parce que je veux apprendre sincerement les parents. Selon les données modestes, cela concerne vivant a la France, l'Angleterre. Moins - l'Amérique, le Canada. Les lettres j'écris a la fois sur anglais et français. La mere de mon grand-pere (Demidov Maxim Andreevich), a la fin de 19 siecles avec le noble Andrei Demidov de la ville de Tula, mais a laissé le nom et avec les enfants est partie vivre au terrain de village - Tambovskaia gubernia, le village Konoplianka. Non toute la génération cadette était d'accord avec le divorce et il continuaient a y avait avant 1917. Avant la révolution D'octobre. Apres plusieurs les parents de Tula sont partis a l'étranger de la Russie et les liaisons se sont désagrégées. Répondez, Demidoves, si se rappelez de vos parents les faits indiqués!

I am interested in anyone being able to provide me with information on the Dermidoff family. Carlo Dermidoff came to the USA from Genoa, Italy in the early 1900's. He claimed to be a descendant of the Demidoff family. The 'r' was added to the name due to an illigitimate son.

My family name. A few years ago, my aunt sent away for a certificate from a geneology research company. The certificate stated that the R was added in when my ancestors came her e in the early 1900's. I know that somewhere along the line there was either an adoption or someone had an affair in Italy. My grandfather's aunt (Ambrosia) would tell stories about how she and her husband (Carlo Dermidoff) visited Italy and were treated almost like royalty. They were both born there. Carlo, who carried the name also had a brother named Angelo, who would be my great grandfather. They both settled in Detroit, Michigan and had families. Carlo and Ambrosia had a son named Angelo. He worked at Chrysler for years and was very high up and respected in the company. Carlo's brother Angelo had three children named Louise, Charles and Rose. Charles being my Grandfather lived in detroit and also worked for Chrysler. I am not sure what went on, but all of the older people tell me that I have " blue blood" running in my veins. Someone mentioned that there happened to be an adoption . I believe that Angelo and Carlo were adopted, but the story still reamians a mystery. I looked in an italian phone directory and to my surprise there were ten listings for "Dermidoff." Please write back and give me any information you can. It would be very helpful......Thanks!!!!

Dear colleagues, I'm a Russian historian living in Florence nearby the Demidoff square. Of course, I was always interested in Demidoff and had written several articles about them - so I was very enthusiastic to find your site. (By the way in my Website Demidoff are nominated because still now we have a Demidoff church which is the lower crypt of our russian church here) I'm a personal friend of Elena Krasnova, the leading specialist on Demidoff in Russia who had compiled an excellent genealogy. Now after the request on Demidoff institutein Ekarerinburg I'm compiling bibliography on Italian Demidoffs (San Donato). I think for italian publications I had found most of them but as for the other languages.... Can You help me somehow? Maybe You can put mail list in Internet so other people can add something? Sincerely Yours, Mikhail

I was very glad finally to find a page dedicated to the Demidoff family! My grandfathers maternal grandfather was Nikolai Petrovich Demidoff (1836/1837-1923), who moved to Finland in 1855, where he married Helena Amalia Warila in 1856. They had 11 children. I am now trying both to find Nikolai Demidoff's ancestors in the old Russian Empire, and also all descendants of Nikolai and Amalia. If anyone has any hints, please contact me! I'm quite stumped at the moment, a brick wall is nothing to this... Kind regards to all relatives! Tryggve

Hello. I only can suspect that my family derives from the noble Demidov's who a part of the web-site is dedicated to. The hypothesis of my family's origin is based on the lineage of Grigory Antoufiev--Demid Antoufiev--Nikita Demidov--Akinthy Demidov--Prokophy Demidov--Lev Demidov--Vasily Demidov. The last person resided in the area very close to where my own direct ancestors lived. Namely Vasily Demidov and his sons had estates in the town of Bykovka, Vasilsurski District, Lower Novgorod Province, Russian Empire. I believe one of his sons who continued to live in the area could be in fact a father of my 4 times great grandfather Gerasim Demidov who was a rich farmer. Very likely that could be Pavel Vasilevich Demidov (B.abt 1815) who about 1840 married Polikseniya Alexandrovna Nertovskaya. In the lower mentioned book it says that he did not have children. But for the obvious lack of his vital info that could be only the author's suggestion. When I was to Russia I ordered a microfilm copy of the book "Genealogy of the Demidov's" written in 1886 by a Russian genealogist (sorry, I lost the name) from the Central Library. It covers the noble family's lineage all the way from the beginning of 17th century to the 70's of the 19th century. It also provides plenty of details on the family members' occupations, their relations to other famous nobles by marriage and a nice genealogical tree. I have copied an essential part of the book and now possess some valuable information from it. Even though I cannot be certain about my relation to this noble family I would be glad to assist anybody with look ups. If I am right with my ideas- it will be great to know my co-descendants by blood. Sincerely. Dmitriy Demidov.
