My step-mother Judy Kamian was born in the central valley of California near Fresno and Sanger. Her parents, Pares and Seto survived the Armenian genocide of 1915.

Pares is from Ordu on the coast of the Black Sea , a city known for  hazelnuts. Seto is from  Gurin  and which today is  Gurun  in the  Sivas province. which is near Capadoccia. It is part of the  Trabzon Subregion.

Armenia is the oldest Christian country.
