(Testimony of George S. De Mohrenschildt Resumed)

Testimony of Jeanne De Mohrenschildt

The testimony of Jeanne De Mohrenschildt was taken at 4:45 p.m. on April 23, 1964, at 200 Maryland Avenue NE., Washington, D.C., by Mr. Albert E. Jenner, Jr., assistant counsel of the President's Commission.
Mr. Jenner.
Do you solemnly swear to tell the truth, and nothing but the truth, in the course of your deposition which I am about to take?
Mr. Jenner.
You are Mrs. George S. De Mohrenschildt?
Mrs. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. Why "S"? The "S" doesn't belong there at all.
Mr. Jenner.
Well, he acknowledged that it does.
Mr. Jenner.
Yes. Sergei.
Mrs. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. I have a brother by the same name Sergei, and he had a son by the name Sergei. Maybe he wants to add the letter to our name.
Mr. Jenner.
No. It shows in the records for many, many years.
Mrs. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. I never knew that. Sergei is his father's name-- that is what it is.
Mr. Jenner.
You have a brother whose name is Sergei, do you not?
Mr. Jenner.
Sergei Michail Fomenko.
Give me your full maiden name. Your name as you were born and given to you by your parents.
Mrs. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. The first name will be Eugenia.
Mr. Jenner.
Mrs. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. I have no middle name. Just Fomenko.
Mr. Jenner.
Now, your mother's name was Tatiana?
Mrs. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. Tatiana. My father, Michail.
Mr. Jenner.
And your father was Michail L.?
Mrs. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. Yes. That is for--his father was Lev.
Mr. Jenner.
You were born in China?
Mr. Jenner.
Our information is it was at Harbin.
Mrs. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. That is right.
Mr. Jenner.
What is the nearest town?
Mrs. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. Nearest town to what?
Mr. Jenner.
Mrs. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. I would not--I cannot say.
Mr. Jenner.
What part of China?
Mrs. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. It is Manchuria. The northern part of China, close to the Siberian border.
Mr. Jenner.
You mean the Russian-Chinese border?
Mr. Jenner.
Do you have a sister?
Mrs. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. From what I recall, we had a--we had three portraits in the house, of children--my portrait, my brother's portrait, and there was a portrait of a little girl. And the portrait--she was about 3 or 4 years old. I don't know how, where did they get that idea, or was I actually told--but she is supposed to be my half-sister--Alexandria her name was supposed to be. And I think my father was married before he married my mother, but, you know, they don't tell much to children, and we never asked anything. We have never had any curiosity about it.
Mr. Jenner.
You are a naturalized citizen of this Nation, are you not?
Mr. Jenner.
Were you naturalized on April 6, 1936?
Mrs. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. No--couldn't. I came here in 1938. How could you possibly get that?
Mr. Jenner.
All right. I am misadvised. I was looking at the wrong thing. You were naturalized when?
Mrs. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. I believe it was 1945, but I cannot be absolutely sure. I have my papers in the hotel. 1944 or 1945, maybe it is 1944. If you want
