I am trying too trace the ancestry of my Great Great Grandfather. Theodor (Todyr) Kassian born Sep 1853 in Chagor,Chernivtsi, Ukraine. Theodor got married to an Olena Trensay around 1870. Olena Trensay was born Bet. Oct 1853 - Oct 1863. They had five children three born in Chagor, Ukraine, and two born in Vegreville, Alberta, Canada. The children's names are Dymtro Kassian (b. 11 Sep 1888 Chagor), Maria Kassian (b. Aug 1891 Chagor), Nick T. Kassian (b. 1894 Chagor), George Kassian (b. 23 Feb 1903 Vegreville), and Petro Kassian (b.01 Feb 1907 Vegreville).
He and his family emigrated too Canada in 17 May 1901. Theodor is known too have two brothers: Lazar Kassian (b.16 Nov 1871) , and Nick (Nykola "Nickola") Kassian (b. Bet. 1872 - 1895). Both brothers emigrated too Royal Park, Alberta, Canada. Lazar and his family emigrated on 19 May 1900. Nick came to Canada sometime after Theodor and Lazar.
Any assistance on the ancestry of these brothers or Theodor's wife Olena Trensay would be most grateful as I am at a loss. I would really like too know more about Theodor's (Todyr's) background since I do not have this information. I don't even have the name of his parents. So as I stated before "Any assistance on [his] ancestry" would be most appreciated. - Bradley Kassian
