  1. Why do you have a web site?
    This is primarily a genealogy site for those interested in Rurikid genealogy. However, we have also made this web site to serve as a historical archive in order to help others learn about the important roles the Gagarin Princes have played in Russian history.

    Current events in Russia have made this an appropriate time to remind the world that the diaspora has not forgotten the atrocities of bolshevism and the Russian Revolution. We want to use this web site to tell the truth about Russian history and answer the lies perpetrated about the monarchy by communism.
    We love Russia, the Russian people, the Russian culture, the monarchy and orthodoxy. This web site was created with respect to all of these things.

  2. Do you want restitution of your properties in Russia?
    Yes. Despite the new freedoms in Russia private properties and residences have not yet been returned to their rightful owners. We are hopeful that restitution will happen for all Russians. Until then, the Gagarin family lives in exile from Russia and continues to stand like the great oak tree.

  3. Are you related to the famous Russian cosmonaut, Yuri Gagarin?
    No. The Gagarin Princes owned many fiefdoms in Russia. Many serfs did not have surnames in Imperial Russia and it was common for them take the surname name of the local prince landowner. We believe that Yuri, the great Russian cosmonaut and first man in space, is a descendant of those serfs.

  4. Вы говорите по-русски?
    Да, немного, но мы обычно говорим на французском и английском языках.
