This researcher, T.F. Boettger, has one of the best sites around related to Imperial, Royal, Princely and Aristocratic genealogy. It took me some time to find the updated link because he changed his address to another place. But I finally found his new and improved sites divided by country:

Genealogies in the Collection of T.F. Boettger listed by country

Bonus links: This other section of his site, in beautiful flash animation, has the following sub-sites for those curious Royal Forum minds:

The Era of Fabergé

The Russian Imperial Award System (a recomended must read book)

Titles of Nobility and the Usurpation of Titles : includes his work on titles and nobility in Poland past and present as well as the usurpers of those titles, titles in the countries that controlled Poland from 18-20th Century and titles in the Napoleonic era. On the bottom of that particular link he discusses Historical Notes on the Concession of Titles, that section will help answer many questions from Royal Forum members (myself included) on the process required for those titles. Enjoy the reading!
an interesting quote on the above link is this one:

...In 1473 (and not in 1476), Rafal Leszczyński obtained from Emperor Frederick III the title of count. This title was conferred on "the entire family". This fact must be noted as contrary to English and Spanish usage; in Poland, titles were always borne by females, by the wives and descendants of both sexes...


Joyaux ayant composé l’écrin de la Princesse Lobanoff de Rostoff

ps. check out his list of names of contributors to his site, is quite impressive as well as his published works list

ps. this is my post # 998, two more to hit the millenium mark!

Paul Theroff's Online Gotha is wonderful for both royal & noble genealogies and news.

I love this genealogy sub forum too. The sites posted here are heavy weights on royal information, you could spent days reading and learning not just on the family links but also on all the royal system and how it worked through out the centuries.

Royal Ged database

A new royal ged file is being updated.

The new file is based on the royal92.ged database of European royal family. It will be updated to 31 December 2007.

Including:
* more relatives such as spouses and parents
* extended descendant tree of Queen Victoria of Great Britain
* royal lineages of european royalty where directly related to the main tree
* full dates where found with day, month, and year
* places of birth, marriage, death where found
* full names
* urls to wikipedia article for details of the relative

Wikipedia has been chosen for stability of urls, ease of searching, readbility, biography, illustrations such as coats of arms, citation of sources where given, citation of external links (eg to royal family websites), and cross references to other relatives.

The ged file can be imported into Family Historian, Family Tree Maker, and any genealogical software able to import .ged files

It is a fascinating project and I have learnt much about the history of European royal families.

As the original 1992 file contains records of over 3000 relatives, the project is still underway, but should be completed in the near future.

In due course, the new file shall be released into the public domain.

Sorry for the late reply. I am slowly updating the entries. So far I have done all the descendants of King Edward VII, and almost done the descendants of Queen Victoria. then I will gradually go up the English royal tree, then the other trees.

I heard what they said about everybody being descended from royalty, but even if it's true Brooke still has a more impressive pedigree than the average person, because of how recent her relation is, and because how much more she has. One article said "So what is it about Brooke? Well nothing at least genealogically." And that is clearly untrue.

Useful On-Line Data Sources

I thought we might help each other out here and post on-line sources that we have found helpful.

I've been writing a biography of a member of a US presidential family who became a published author after marrying into Russian aristocracy. I found the following sources invaluable:

www.lexis-nexis.com for researching articles in mainstream publications

www.ancestry.com which has passenger manifests which are very useful in tracing journeys. Best information is for US travel of less than reigning monarchs.

www.ebay.com for reference or research books, cheaply. Books are covered extensively in another thread, but I have found ebay to be a terrific source. Books that originally went for hundreds of dollars (like one I bought last week) can be had for $20; books that were originally under $50 go for $5.00 or less. [Plus I picked up a pair of Chanel shoes for $300 (original retail $899) so it's not always about royalty.] For me, it's been worthwhile because when I'm doing research, I scribble all over my books: bend pages, highlight, do margin notes. Having more than one copy purchased cheaply is wonderful.

I post these three just to sort of prime the well. For someone researching an individual, a family or an event for publication, there are a myriad of sources.

I'd like to invite others who have done research and can "vouch for" sources that they found particularly useful to keep adding here, as will I. Some sources are better than others in some area of research, while other sources cover different areas better. It would be great to know which are which.

Come on in, everyone, the water is fine.......
