I have added many items to the Memorial Page of Edward Keonjian.
I do not have Internet so it just took me a little longer to answer your note. Sorry

How does one include folks on this list?
I noticed that the list is rather bereft of Seattle/Tacoma, Portland and Vancouver BC names. These three NW cities/regions were destinations for Russians coming out of the Far East and include Clergy, Flag Rank and senior officers as well as prominent people in the communities here.

How does one go about including this part of almost forgotten history?

Maria Khmara was buried next to him, so I added that photo as well.

Could you do us the favor and check on these names and make sure we translated them correctly. If you find any spelling errors, please let us know. Thank you very much.

Hi, thanks again.

The cemetery list at says Обряд погребения совершил сербский священник, which Google tells me means burial rites performed by Serbian priest.

So I'll try the inscription with Serbian.

Thanks, BobP

RE: Your Russian English Virtual File
Thank you for the translations, I appreciate it very much!

If you see any other mistakes or omissions, you can also enter them yourself if you like by clicking on the Edit tab of the memorial and then on Marker Transcription.

Thanks again, take care,

the information is taken from the book published in Russian in 2012 based on the cemetery transcriptions and regarding this interment they quote the cemetery books not the tombstone transcription.
Please in future if you want any correspondence regarding particular memorials, send a message using an Edit tab and include your mail. We often read mail on the move and it is too hard to look for your personal page to reply.
Thank you for understanding.

RE: Ida Redina
Well all I can tell you is I picked up a photo request from you for Victor Redina and when I scanned the National register to confirm the location I also came up with Ida, his wife. I tried just putting in the photo request myself but found if I do the system will not allow me to fulfill it. I can only fulfill requests from others, which is why I pinged you. I'll just get the photo for Ida and when I do Victor and add it to her site.

She is Memorial # 3746120; Victor is Memorial # 3746122
Los Angeles National Cemetery

I'd love to be able to read about ZM on his memorial page - any possibility of translating it into English? Also, do you have the location of his grave?

Howdy RC:
I've been following MARIA's Russian-born son, VADIM.
He is mentioned in a 1943 coded cable from a Russian spy in NYC to the KGB in Moscow. These top secret cables were finally decoded as the Venona Project in 2010. VADIM enlisted in the US Army in 1942 (naturalized 1943) and got out in 1946. I think he worked as a translator as he spoke several languages. I have been trying to figure out if he was a Russian agent or a "double-agent".
Where can I find out for sure?

It was just an accident of fate that I posted his grave on findagrave. He was recently buried. The permanent grave marker had not yet been erected. I do not know why I took the picture of his temporary grave marker. It was 100 percent chance. I had no idea that he was someone very special.

Your Beautiful Tribute To Your Dear Parents
My family and I visited the Richmond Cemetery on Nov 16th, 2013. It was in the hopes of trying to meet someone of Ukrainian or Russian descent and learn whether there might be a clue of whether I could find some relations to my dear parents who were also refugees from the former Soviet Union.

It was a memorable experience to say the least to view the memorials and try to piece this part of history near and dear to my heart and soul. I then found your beautiful tribute to your dear parents on the internet. Your parents were heroes as mine were also. My father led a caravan of many families out of the former Soviet Union making their way to Austria and then on to Venezuela and finally to the USA. Also saving many dear souls along their turbulent journey to freedom.

If you would like to communicate by email to maybe assemble more information about our common history, I would enjoy that.

With my best wishes and respect,

Sorry, unfortunately we haven't Leonid Vasian photo. My family are the relatives of his wife, Ekaterina Goudkoff.We only know where and when Leonid was born, when he emigrated to USA and some facts about his Hollywood professional achievments(from Internet).

Спасибо, за Ваш ответ. Я Н. А. знал, однако, не был похоронах, и все делал со слов Татьяны Николаевны, если Вы нашли неточности, я их тут же исправлю, по согласовании с ТН, которую увижу в воскресенье. Рад виртуальному знакомству

Добрый день R.C.
Я сделал эту виртуальную могилу при участии Татьяны Николаевны Бобринской. Сомневаюсь, что там есть ошибки, так как это было сделано в течение короткого времени после похорон. Вы можете связаться с ней и проверить эти сведения. Если она подтвердит, что там есть ошибки -я их исправлю. Кстати, вчера у неё был день рождения с круглой датой. Спасибо
