I am attempting to find the parents of my Armenian great-great-grandparents.



Both were born in Armenia around 1870-1890. I have little to no info besides this

There is a FindAGrave memorial for a Frank Markarian (and father and two brothers), with gravestone inscription Aug 4, 1873 - Jan 2, 1938.

His father's memorial has the text:

Melkon Markarian and his family settled in Fresno in 1882. He came with his wife, three sons, and two daughters.
