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 (Ancestry.com) 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.

Gudaulpe Cemetery
Hi Nancy, i have returned from my trip to Mexico. I managed to photograph all the headstones located in the Guadalupe Valley cemetery. I will begin posting the ones i can however many of the old ones are completely in Russian and i need help translating them. Also i spoke to my Uncle and Matvey Bucaroff and Proskovia Klubniken Bucaroff did infact come over from Russia and are buried in Guadalupe. I have photos i thought to be them with my grandmother and her siblings and my uncles confirmed it for me. The siblings i know of are Anna, Dunya, Maria, Vasili, Nicholi, Mikhail, Alex and Ivan.

Nancy,
Milford High School in Milford, Utah is awarding a Honorary High School Diploma to those veterans that went into military service (WWII) before they could graduate from high school. We think Mr. Richard Barnes may be one of these veterans. I am searching for a relative and an address to send the information. Would you be able to assist me? My name is Cheryl Elmer at kelmer@q.com.

Thank you.

Thank you Nancy for transfering over my families memorials. I'll have to ask my cousin Danny more about his dad Pablo. I know Vierka is deceased as well. He was the uncle i didnt really know very well. I know he had 10 children. Danny was the lady and had been adopted out until my grandmother made her sister confess his location on her death bed. I will be traveling to see my family in Mexico on the 23rd and will photograph as much of the cemetery as i can. A lot of the markers were made of wood so i dont know how good their condition will be. I will share them with u when i return.
