i have just spent a pleasing forty minutes watching a documentary about agafia lykov. a while ago her story made the rounds of a bunch of blogs.

short version: her father and mother fled to the siberian wilderness in the '30s to escape persecution and stayed there.

you can see more about this and the documentary here.

and to save you googling "old believers", the wiki page is here.
