Hi Stephen & Richard
Thanks for the reply. I appreciate the information on the village and some of the family names that were listed. My family also consists of Kohuts (my great grandmother was a Kohut), Marushchak (married into Michalski family). My mother had a teacher in Rosa named Salamandyk, Pupeza was a neighbour of my grandparents in Rosa, Manitoba - in fact I called him Uncle Joe (always had candy for me and my brother when we were children).
It doesn't sound that there are any actual Michaliski's still in Syn'kiv. My great uncle Sam Michalski died around 1985 in Syn'kiv.
The other side of my family tree had Boyechko - who immigrated in 1898, along with Nykieforczan (related through marriage), and Kolodrupsky (my cousins grandfather).
Would you happen to know if the Pidhirnyi family consists of a mother or grandmother named Mary Michalski? Mary Michaliski had married a Waysl in Syn'kiv (don't when they got married) but we know they had two children, Peter and Annie. Peter had one child that we heard. Annie is married a Mahieo or Makyeo, don't know if there are any children.
