Hi, I am looking for some family ancestry. We were raised staunch Ukrainian. My grandfather, Simon (Samuel)Mazurek, and grandmother, Paranka (Parania) Butynec) migrated to Pennsylvania from Ukraine, and then to Grand Rapids, MI. Paranka was from L'viv, and we cannot decipher where Simon was born. Simon's father's name was Andrew (not sure). Simon and Paranka had 7 children, one was my Dad, John Andrew Mazurek. Other siblings were Anna, Joseph, Mary and Adam. Two of seven children died at an early age.
In the early years, we were active in St. Michael's Ukrainian Catholic Church, Grand Rapids, MI.
I would like to know how to find ancestors in Ukraine. Thank you.
