Russian Old Believer cemetery at Nikolaevsk, Alaska

Старообрядческое село Николаевск на Аляске, США, возникло  в 1967 году. С 1968 года в Николаевске старообрядцы часовенного согласия создали прочные дома и постоянное поселение, Начали строить моленную и школу. А с 1975 года берет свое начало и старообрядческое кладбище. К 1985 году часть николаевских старообрядцев приняли священство от Белокриницкаой иерархии. Возникло два общества – поповское и безпоповское. Кладбище же осталось общим.

К настоящему времени известны не все имена старообрядцев, покоящихся в могилах старообрядческого кладбища в Николаевске. Мы публикуем только те материалы, которые стали известны по состоянию на начало 2000х годов благодаря работе священника Николы Якунина.

P.S. Мы готовы разместить информацию и о других старообрядческих кладбищах Аляски.

  1. Great Russian:

    Pay attention to # 5 (Born in Russia), # 7 (born in Russia), # 9 (Born in Russia), # 11 (Born in Russia), # 13, row 5 (Born in Russia), # 18 (Born in Russia), etc. And I wonder why their descendants deal with Romania, not Russia?

  2. Аноним:

    #4 The son of Fr. Pavel and m. Natalia Fefelov
