Dear Jean Jacques, thank you for your efforts. there is more detail that I know from my mother. My grand grandfather was a colonel in the personal guard last Tsar. Despite the family emigrated via Istanbul, my grandfather lost and was transfered to Czechoslovakia. After Russian grammar school and graduating from the Academy, he settled in Brno and married. He had two daughters Tatiana and my mother, Natalie. During the war worked in the theater as a ballet dancer and ballet master. HE danced in theatres in Brno Salzburg and Innsbruck. After the war he found his family in Paris and since then lived in France. Of political and personal reasons are never returned to Czechoslovakia. His mother and sister moved later to the USA. The last message I have that he was owner with Mr. M. Manuel or only lived in hotel Three bells near Marseille.The possibility of transcription of Russian name. Bazenov, Bazhenoff, Bagenoff, Bajenoff. My grandfather sometimes used the title von Kobe, or de Korbe. Thank you and look forward to more news.
