Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am of Russian descent and have primarily focused my interest on the Russian Molokans. They settled on Potrero Hill in San Francisco and many are buried at the Russian Sectarian Cemetery in Colma, CA; I have also located many at Olivet Memorial Park and Vacaville, CA.

There is a Russian Molokan message board ( where I have made posts of news articles, obituaries, historical information and much more.

I am a native of San Francisco, CA.

I've always liked cemeteries and hope I can help other people locate their ancestors graves. I love doing research and would be willing to help anyone with information or pictures.

I don't consider snapshots I take of a grave or a family photo I upload to be copyrighted or owned by me. I understand the importance of wanting a copy of a grave to attach to someone in your family tree. If it's been uploaded by me, I've done it to share with others. I don't mind someone copying the photos and I also have no problem emailing any pictures or documents I have that someone would like.

If I go to a cemetery, I try to take pictures of as many graves as possible and upload pictures to existing memorials or set up memorials if there isn't one, in hopes of it helping a family member locate them. I'm happy to do any updates that you want and don't hesitate to ask for transfers. Just use the Suggest a Correction link on the desired memorial. If they mean something to you, then you are probably better able to give them the best memorial possible.

RE: Your grandfather
Thank you so much Nancy. You are a total sweetheart! I've seen all the work you have done for everyone including my family. I most certainly can use and would greatly appreciate any help with the family tree because as I'm sure you've realized can be challenging and gets confusing

RE: Lt. John Samuel Andrews
Unfortunately, I do not know the answer to that question. I will keep researching that. In the meantime, I am going to transfer this memorial to you. You seem to have much more of a connection to this soldier than I do because of your background and heritage. I just want to pay homage to our WWII dead. It doesn't matter to me who owns the memorial.

Thank you for all you do on Find-A-Grave!!!

Ridivon corrected
I just realized this is a memorial and not the actual grave? Ok the burial is my great Grandfather Roy Pavlov (same person) as the memorial Ridivon Pabloff. Thank you so much for posting this! My grandmother and most of her siblings were born here when her parents fled Russia and settled in the Valle Guadalupe

Ridivon Pabloff
You are correct it is Ridivon or "Roy" and the last name is actually spelled Pabloff which was Pavloff but when coming to Mexico from Russia somehow got changed. I think this is my Grandmother's Grandfather.

Photo Requests Russian Sectarian Colma
Hi Nancy, I am having no luck with anyone taking photos of three people, a grandmother, mother and daughter buried at this cemetery in Colma. If you are out there again to take photos, would you consider photographing these? Thanks, JD

Monica Golbov - 59346571
Hi Nancy -- I'm going to send you a private e-mail with links to all of my documentation - and I've already sent some automated updates for Monica -- but the bio you have for her on her memorial contains many mistakes. The reason for that is because the Ancestry tree that had that info on it was incorrect. Monica was actually the granddaughter of Charles Joseph Schab and Sarah Jane (Tuttle) Schab. She is listed as their granddaughter on the censuses as well. Her actual parents were Bert Eugene Haywood and Genevieve Elizabeth Schab (who was the daughter of Charles and Sarah. Bert and Genevieve were married between 1900 and 1904 in California. Monica was born in Butte County, CA in 1904 and then Bert and Genevieve were divorced before 1910. Genevieve then married her second husband, Carson Morell Burlingham (1879-1955) on September 11, 1912 in Butte County, CA. They were divorced as well (between 1920 and 1930). Genevieve (Monica's mother) is buried in Old Oroville Cemetery in Butte County, CA and her father, Bert Haywood, is buried in Gridley-Biggs Cemetery in Butte County, CA. Even though Monica went by the name "Schab" - that was not her actual surname. It was Haywood, her father's name, and that's why you see it listed on Monica's childrens' paperwork as their mother's maiden name. Hope that makes sense! Please feel free to write me if you have questions, but can you please change the bio to reflect this new, updated info so people know the actual parents? It certainly will help if anyone is doing their DNA and wants to understand who they are related to : )) Thank you very much!!

Ivan Karacozoff (& wife)
Ivan is actually buried at East Lawn, Sacramento in Section 8. I added the headstone info for he and his wife and grandchild today. I would be happy to add my headstone photos to your memorial if you want to change the location of the cemetery.
