This surname's transliterational (sounds-like) variants can be Matechuk/Mateczuk/Matichuk/Matychuk etc, but in Ukrainian the surname is Матичук. Closest transliteration would be
Matychuk/czuk.

FYI if your families were from Bukowyna/Bukowina, you are posting in the wrong subforum. This is Chernihiv (turn of the 19th century Chernigov > Czarist Russia) oblast/region > Eastern Ukraine, Russia and Belarus today.

Historic Bukowyna Province was/is in southernmost edge of Ternopil(ska) oblast and in whole of Chernivetska (Chernivtsi) oblast > both located in what is Western Ukraine today. Most of Southern Bukowyna Province is in Romania today.
=================================
I am in disagreement w/Gulia as to origin and meaning of surname. The Matyczuk surname is a variant Ukrainian surname formed from male baptismal name Matthew. It is rooted in Hebrew and means GIFT OF GOD. There are 5 Matthews listed in the Orthodox and Greek Catholic Calendars.
