Repuzhyntsi = Репужинці (in Ukrainian) > Zastavna raion/district > Chernivtsi oblast/region > UA, latest zip code 59414. Today this historical province is still referred to as Bukowyna by locals. During Interwar Period Romanian name was Rapujineţi > Cernauţi.

Village was founded on the right bank of the Dniester River in 1353 by Askold Repuzhynetskij. Village survived many Tartar slave raids between 14th/15th century. Today it still exists w/population of appx 1,900+.

Old photo of Orthodox Church of the Intercession, built in 1791, in time frame when there were only 25 homes in the village.

LDS has filmed Orthodox Church Registers for Repuzhyntsi (1841-1932)

Following link is geared for Galician Heritage, however Vital Records Section contains HOW-TO research records in Old Church Slovanic which LDS lists incorrectly as Russian. Make sure to obtain a transliteration (sounds-like) of your surname using Cyrillic Alphabet, before starting your research.

Today there is one Moroz (means FROST in Ukr) listed as still living in selo/village Rypushyntsi:
Moroz, Myroslav son of Mytrofan dob 1945
