I am hoping that someone out there can help me with a bit of a mystery. The hankie is a family piece from my mother's side of the family. My maternal family originally hailed from Austria and Alsace in France. I know that we are somehow descendent from the Austrian Royal family. I do remember her telling me about an assassination and part of the family seeking exile in Southern Russia near Odessa but that is all I know. My mother was born in 1923 and left France in 1935 coming to Canada with her family. She was fluent in French, German, English and Russian. She died when I was rather young and I wish I had better information on my family's geneology.
