Searching for the ancestors and relatives of Alexander Bodnar born 1874, Michael Bodnar born 1881 and Ambrose Bodnar born 1883. They were born in Piedykoutz, Bukowina and they were the sons of George and Anna Bodnar.
These 3 brothers all immigrated to Canada. It is unknown when Alexander immigrated. Michael and Ambrose came to Canada in 1905 traveling first to Winnipeg, Manitoba and then eventually to Fort William, Ontario around 1907.
Michael Bodnar married Anna Sykyrnskoi (Shikirnski, Shycarynsca) on October 26, 1911 in Fort William, Ontario. Anna was born about 1893 also in Bukowina and she was the daughter of Peter and Sanda Sykyrnskoi. Michael and Anna had 8 children. Michael died on August 15, 1951 and Anna on May 5, 1943. Both are buried in Fort William, Ontario.
Ambrose is shown in the 1911 Fort William census with his brother Michael, but there is no information regarding him after that date.
Alexander Bodnar died on November 1, 1941 and was buried in Fort William Ontario. A letter regarding his estate said that he was survived by a daughter and it gave her name as Mariya Oleksandrivna Zakharuk, (nee Bodnar) and her residence as the village of Pejadikovzy of the Kizmansky District, Chernovezkaya Province. My mother received several letters from her between 1967 and 1971, the letters were all post marked Nepolokovtsy, Chernovitis Obl.
Any information or help would be appreciated.
