Oct-04-06  BIDMONFA: Elena Fatalibekova


Oct-04-06  ahmadov: Because of this lady's surename, I think she must be related either with Azeris or other Turkic-language nations in Central Asia.
Oct-04-06  Caissanist: Pardon my ignorance, but would that be by birth or by marriage? That is, are you saying that it's Rubtsova or Fatalibekova that sounds Turkic?
Oct-04-06  ahmadov: <Caissanist> By marriage. She must have a Muslim husband.
