Origin and Meaning of Spiritual Christian Surnames
By Jonathan J. Kalmakoff with Andrew J. Conovaloff
<<www.doukhobor.org/Molokan.htm>>
Spiritual Christian surnames often hold clues to family origins. In some cases they can indicate the name of an early ancestor, their trade or occupation, ethnic or geographic origin, or a descriptive nickname. The following glossary contains roots and meanings of hundreds of Russian Spiritual Christian surnames in America and Russia. This site will expand with Noteworthy Spiritual Christian and a surname location index.

150 Russian Sectarian Burials in LA County Cemetery, 1904-1909
By Dave W Samarin, Nancy-Popin-Umland, Andrei Conovaloff.
Below are transliterated Russian surnames, in Soundex order, from 150 Russian immigrant burials recorded at the Los Angeles County Cemetery (founded 1896), 3301 E. 1st St. (corner of Lorena St.), Los Angeles, CA 90063 — phone: 323-268-5111 (Hours: 7:30 am to 3:00 pm, Monday – Friday). The original handwritten list was collected by David W. Samarin in 1996. In 2008, Nancy Popin transcribed the
list and posted it on the Spiritual Christian Family History and Genealogy Message Board. In 2010 Conovaloff analyzed the data, corrected errors and interpreted the 60 different Russian surnames listed below. Of the 150 graves, 80% were infants, and 85 were moved in 1910 to the Prygun and Dukh-i-zhiznik cemetery purchased on Eastern Ave. at Second Street. 65 graves remain at the original LA County Cemetery. For more details see: 150 Russian Spiritual Christian Burials in Los Angeles County Cemetery, 1904-1909.

Molokan Families, genealogy research
Фамилии Молокан, генеалогические исследования
By German Strelnikov << http://www.sdhm.ru/forum/topic_12  >> 27 May 2008
The first "Molokan genealogy" website in Russia is proposed, and the second in the Russian language (See Sandikov Genealogy below). Hosted by the website SDHM.info — Soiuz dukhovnie kristian-molokan (Union of Spiritual Chirstian Molokans). German proposes starting with a list of the 143 families who purchased the 34 square miles of land for the village of Vorontsovka in 1851. See the list:  "Historical Material". Spiritual Christians founded Vorontsovka village in 1844, Soviets renamed it Kalinino in 1935, and in 1991 Armenia renamed it Tashir. It was the location of the historic 1905 Molokan convention. The 1851 Vorontsovka founders' census shows family names, gender, age, and where they came from in Russia. German also published 3 family trees (MS-Word.DOC) going back 8 generations to the early 1800s for Glazovs, Strelnikovs and Semiletovs. The 107 Vorontsovka founding family surnames (English - Russian) are:

Shinen-Valoff Family Pedigree Chart
5 generations prepared 2006 by Louis Walter Shinen, Jr.
I traced my ancestors back to 1841. My grandfolks came to America around 1904 from Kars Oblast. They also lived in Georgia. My dad, Louis Walter Shinen, died in 1981 in Rosemead, Calif. My mom, Anna William Pavloff, died in 2002. I was in the service from 1963 to 1969, yet I was able to miss all the fighting. I was off the coast of Vietnam for two months before the war and we were rotated back to Okinawa just before the first landings. I was on orders to go to Danang when I got out and started college. So I was blessed in not having to shed the blood of my fellow man. Surnames of my ancestors:
  • Karetov
  • Kobzeff
  • Kulikoff
  • Ledciff
  • Miloserdoff
  • Morozoff
  • Novikoff
  • Pavloff
  • Shinen
  • Sakrakoff
  • Samohin
  • Sarokin
  • Terehntiv

by Jean (Evanikoff) Murray  <<  http://www.molokane.org/molokan/Genealogy/Murray_email.htm >> 
Jean sent in 4 photos. The first was taken in San Francisco around 1911-12: "Many of them are Evanikoff family, and it is one of my very favorite photos. The young boy, seated on the ground at left, is my father, and he is holding what appears to be a Bible. The other two boys are holding ENGLISH FOR NEW AMERICANS." Also there's several photos taken in Russia (Piatigorsk?) in August 1970 by my grandfather, but we don't know who there relatives are or where they live, and my  grandparents in Kars about 1903.

"My family were Molokans from Blagoveshchensk. I am gathering photographs, stories and history from my father and Uncles to write a novel based on their very interesting history. I have photographs of the Molokans in Blagoveshchensk, and the Hotel which they built in 1914. I also have a photo taken in early 1900's of the waterfront of Blagoveshchensk. A town that was mostly built by industrious Molokans. I would love to be able to share and trade information." She includes photos of her grandfather's family.

Kars Parish registers, 1879-1917 and 1871-1919
E-mail from Rob and Sue Craven << http://www.molokane.org/molokan/Genealogy/Kars_records.htm >> 
Microfilm of manuscripts in the Central Historical Archive of the Armenian Republic, Erevan. Text in Russian. Catalog information from the LDS Family History Library Card Catalog for information collected from Kars, Turkey (Russian Empire). The first set was filmed on 62 microfilm reels by The Genealogical Society of Utah, 1994-1995. The information was collected from churches in the Kars area, that were tasked by the Tsar with political record keeping. Our research has shown that these films contain a vast variety of documents and files, including Birth, Marriage, Death and Passport records. As soon as any of you have seen these please send in a report. Go to the nearest Mormon Library. In California, check West LA and Oakland, and in Arizona I'll visit Mesa.

Searching for: Susie Valoff
by Antonio Solorzano, (found on CyberPages International, Lost and Missing Relatives 
<< http://www.cyberpages.com/attractions/persons199610.html >>) 
I am searching for my first cousin, the son of my mother's late younger brother, Tom Mares, whose nickname was "Sailor". My uncle Tom has many Russian Spiritual Christian friends and spoke fluent Russian. His wife at the time was a young Russian Molokan girl named Susie Valoff (Valov). My uncle met Susie when they both lived in the Boyle Heights section of Los Angeles in the 1930's. I believe shortly after the birth of their son, Jeffrey, they divorced. A few years later, my uncle Tom approved of Jeffrey's adoption by Susie's new husband, a name I don't have. Information from my mother and surviving uncle is that Susie had family in the Bakersfield/Fresno, California area and that they were potatoe farmers. Susie and her family were members of the Russian Spiritual Christian community. Jeffrey is probably in his 60's by now. If there is anyone with information about Susie or Jeffrey, please contact Antonio Solorzano, Jr., 825 Bluff Road, Montebello, California 90640-5921 or at the following e-mail address: mjimenez@bell.k12.ca.us.
