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.

Hi Nancy. Mrs. Tolmachoff's memorial has been up-dated and thank you for the picture that you posted. I was unable to find her son, Michael, 1946-2011. Apparently he's not in the data base. Take care and have a great week.

Nancy, I added "Peggy" to Irma's memorial. I can transfer her to you so when a family member wants a transfer of Irma & George they will be under the same memorial manager. Thanks... Michael

Obituary for 71289949
Thank you very much for sending an obituary for Nina Dominguez, however I cannot add it to her memorial per Find A Grave rules (copied below).
I really don't like this rule & was hoping it would be revised, but recently it has actually become more restrictive (used to be able to add 1950 or earlier, now changed to 1922 or earlier)
You will see that I have added to the memorial much information from the obituary without actually copying the obit to the memorial.

Find A Grave Frequently Asked Questions

Can I add an obituary to my interment listing?
You should not copy obituary notices from newspapers (or from funeral home notices or web sites) to an individual's memorial record unless you have permission from the newspaper to do so or you are the author of the obituary. Some obituaries that were published in 1922 or earlier are now in the public domain. In general, obituaries in newspapers are submitted by the family with assistance from the funeral home. If the obituary is added to the memorial record, it should list the newspaper and date the obit was printed for example "Published in the Hattiesburg American, Hattiesburg, Mississippi, Internet Edition, April 11, 2007". Please do not include the names of living or surviving relatives in the biography, unless you have their permission. If you do not have permission to copy an obituary to a memorial, you may put a note stating the name of the newspaper and the date the obituary was published.
Please do NOT add photographs from obituary notices (unless you, personally took the photo), as they are protected by copyright law. Find A Grave reserves the right to remove obituary notices and photographs from memorial records. Similarly, you may NOT scan an obituary and add it as a photograph to a memorial record.

Thank you for the information to add to the memorial. I do not include named of living relatives, even if the obituary was found online, due to Find A Grave's policy. I personally will add names of surviving family members if the death occurred at least 50 years ago. For deaths occurring more recent than that, I prefer to follow Find A Grave's guidelines. As such, I have removed the names of her surviving children from the obituary you provided. I hope you understand.

Best regards,

RE: Melnikoff
I have deleted my posting which was made before I had found the obituary and learned the correct spelling. Bea is on the cemetery list of plot purchasers but this is probably becausse she buried her mother.

Thank you,

Hi there, Does the cemetery record show Hollcroft or Dabovich?

This was your message to me today.
I can't answer you right now because I'm in the process of moving and all my stuff is packed somewhere.
I wrote down your question and your email and I will get back to you in a couple of weeks. OK?
As soon as I'm in my new place, I'm taking my computer in for servicing; that's why it'll be a couple of weeks before I get back to you.

God bless

Delete his info in the flower area. That is for flowers and notes of love. Not SACs.
