Agrippina Vaganova

Recommended Posts

Is anyone familiar with the geneaology of Agrippina Vaganova? I have been able to determine that she had one son, Aleksandr Pomerantsev, but I cannot trace her family any further with what I know. Did Aleksandr have any children? It appears that Aleksandr did not follow his mother's pursuits and did not live a life involved with ballet. Does anyone know if that is correct? While her biographies are filled with the details of her professional life I have yet to find information about her child or subsequent grandchildren. Thank you.

Did you see this?

From this:

Personal life
Vaganova connected her life with the tsarist army colonel Andrei Alexandrovich Pomerantsev. The marriage was not official, as Pomerantsev didn’t divorce his first wife.
In 1904 Agrippina gave birth to their son Alexander. You know, Vaganova’s granddaughter Lyudmila also became a ballet dancer.

Like anything else from the internet, take such information with care, doing your own research. The article mentions a 2010 Russian documentary, Agrippina Vaganova: The Great & The Terrible, which may be the source for the above info? It may be interesting to track that doc. YouTube?

Adding:

The tsarist army colonel, Andrei Alexandrovich, may have been connected to the famous architect Alexander Pomerantsev, who would have been old enough to have been Andrei's father.

Thank you. I am going to see if I can trace Lyudmila's lineage as well. I had only been able to find information about Aleksandr, so this is one generation further (if accurate). I very much appreciate the help.
